« Part 1: The before pics Part 2 of Craftsman TS restoration series Part 3: 2nd Effort »

I used Naval Jelly to remove the heavier rust. Then I used WD-40 with some 400 grit sandpaper.
In this pic I have a layer of WD-40 floating on the top. I figure I’d let it sit like that until I get back to it.

I use Liquid Wrench, it loosens rust much better than WD 40. (I think WD40 really means Watered Down 40 times !) “Obviously I am not a fan of WD40.”

I had some WD-40, so that’s what I went with. I may give Liquid Wrench a try, if I need more sanding.
I don’t like the rust stains. I’ve read good reviews on Rust Free.
