After soaking in the Evaporust solution for a few days I strained the solution back into the bottle and cleaned off the vise to see how well this stuff worked. I was very surprised at how well this stuff works I can only imagine what the electrosysis method would have done!!
I scuffed the front a bit to be able to see the markings a little bit better.
Note: The Electrolysis method was something I been really wanting to understand better and possibly try in the future. The only reason I chose the “evapo” stuff was mainly because I am working out of a small townhouse
basement with no ventilation in that room. The main room in the basement which would be considered finished does have 1 window. Im very uneducated about the “electro” method in regards to combustion, fumes, or the like. I never researched this way Yet!!. For all I know its completely safe and I had nothing to worry about. I do however want to in the future try this method as I have read ALOT about this on this site and the results seem to be way better than any type of store bought mix. Much cheaper as well from what I can tell!!!
Compared to the before pics I believe this evaporust method did quite a fine job for a solution that is basically water.
Now onto trying to actually clean this thing up a bit. I am still unsure of what to use on this meaning what I have on hand to work with. Sandpaper so far is about all I have to clean this thing up with, a few months ago my GF was wanting to get me one of those dremel tools and I told her not to waste her money that I would just pick something else. Forgot what I picked but now I am kinda wishing I would have just said yea I would like to have one of those things.
Just really didn’t seem like something that would be of interest to me really a little rotary tool to sand images into wood. Possibly does more than this but that was my first impression of those little tools.
