ELECTROLYSIS RUST REMOVAL
An easy and relatively safe method of rust removal
is the use of electrolysis. It involves a few common items that
can be scrounged or bought quite cheaply.
**Caution** Hydrogen gas reacts explosively with
oxygen (in the presence of heat) to produce water vapor. Take Michael
Sullivan's advise seriously about shutting down the power before
adjusting/removing the electrodes.
If you are using electrolysis to remove rust...and
have a considerable broth of bubbles...be very cautious. That broth
is not the place to discard a glowing cigarette ember, lit match...or
any other spark. Be warned...!!
