Norm, I am truly sorry this happened to you, but I think I can cheer you up a bit. Steel is a very funny thing. We don't perceive it as changing, but it does. The more a tool rusts, the more impurities it leeches out of the steel. When you get done polishing that scraper up, it will shine better than it did the first time. That is if you choose to really do a good job and aren't completely disgusted with it.
I am not making this up. The older, the more rustier the piece of metal, the more pure the steel is after polishing. It will shine like you would not believe. It just takes more work to reach that point.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
