I don't know if anyone here has ever tried this product called Autosol available from Lee Valley among other places.
Well some time back I purchased a tube to use on my planes given what I experienced last winter in a non dry shop.
But what I want to highlight about this product is its use in sharpening carving chisels and any other tools where steel is basically naked.
It has a small amount of I will call it pumice or fine grit in it but its not a super hard grit. Not as rough as grit in Fast Orange hand cleaner but I found it excellent to use in the sharpening of carving chisels on the slips.
What I like as well is the fine protective film it leaves after as well which means you aint coming back to rusted metal.
Note a very little goes a long way so use sparingly. Worth trying on all sorts. Think I might see how it does on one of my cast iron tops but I think its a tad expensive for that kind of application where paste wax would do better I think.
Going to give all my planes and their parts a going over. It will remove light rust as well. Another case where I appreciate LV carrying stuff that really works.
