I enjoy woodworking as a hobby. I also like to buy old tools and restore them to working order. I have always enjoyed building stuff, and one day while watching The Woodwrights Shop it hit me, I could make furniture and I will always have projects and a shop to work on. It have enjoyed it ever since.

I ended up using Jasco to neutralize the rest of the rust. This product is awesome if you are going to paint metal. After you have removed dirt, grime, and grease with a wire brush and mineral spirits. You spray it on and it deactivates the rust...
After using Evaporust and “The Works”, I would much prefer using Evaporust if I could. I did a test run of The Works on some of the parts that were too large for my 1 quart of Evaporust, and everything went well. “TW” is ...
