« Part 7: ToolBox Restoration Part 8 of Tool Restorations series no next part

Ever since I tried Electrolosis on my Vintage Tool box.. I’ve been amazed.
Today I bought a 1917 Hickory Treasure Hot Blast stove door and put it through
my setup. Instead of using metal for the sacrificial anode I’m using carbon. It’s WAY
less messy… to work with.

The only way to clean up rusted objects of any kind..

Anyhow… here are the results from today..

Impressive results. I’m interested in you setup using carbon. I have some old saws and planes I need to restore.

Hi everyone.. I will have to do a short video up.. it’s easier than trying to explain it.
It’s not my idea.. electrolosis has been used for years.. Using CARBON instead of steel though, is a way cleaner method. Other guys have done it also.. that’s where I got the info. Finding CARBON was the hard part.
Anyhow.. in the next few days I’ll do a video up.
Merry Christmas everyone..
