« Part 1: Calipers Part 2 of Refurbishing tools series no next part

Finally figured out how to get pictures from my computer to a web site and to here.

Calipers

The nail set and plumb line were purchased new and didn’t need restoration :-)

All in all very pleased with the citric acid solution, so highly recommend it.

Very cool! Now keep a very light coat of oil on the to keep rust away.

Wow – if those had rust that is a beautiful job- what type of solution did you use for the rust?

Yeah Im very happy with the results, i’m using wax to keep the rust at bay. i just used a solution of citric acid and water, and a little bit of time and a modicum of elbow grease with a toothbrush.
