    Who sells the Evaporust, Mike? I might have to try that stuff as it looks like it "Might" be less hassle than the Electrolysis method, (at least on smaller items), and doesn't seem to leave the terrible stains/discoloration on the metal like Naval Jelly (which I absolutely will not use).

    Hi Norman

    I know Lee Valley sells it in small quantities for 1 gallon you have to go to the store. But Google it and you will see loads of outlets. Probably one down the road from you when you do that.

    Cheers

    I picked up a small-ish (1 qt?) container of EvapoRust at my local AutoZone several months back.

    That is pretty amazing results. Do you leave the wood on?
    Isn't it just phosphoric acid?
    Whatever, results are what count.

    No, not an acid ... it's pH-neutral (6-7). Works by "selective chelation". Non-hazardous, reusable, sewerable ... pretty amazing stuff. For more info, see the official website, particularly the Comparison Chart.

    Pretty impressive. I can see a lot of potential uses for gunsmiths and restorers of all kinds.

    Harbor Freight has it in quarts and gallons.

    It's re-usable, but it gets really gross looking after even just one use. It's much less fuss to use than electrolysis, and seems to do just as good a job.

    I paid $23 for a gallon of Evaporust at O'Rileys autoparts store. It was the closest and first autoparts store I called. They have had it for years and none of the store clerks had ever used it but had seen a training video and said it looked impressive. They want to see my results. It does leave a dull grey finish.
