Wow! Looks like you are working way too hard on that!

I would have gone for a drill and a wire wheel. I would also have used naval jelly (phosphoric acid). It will actually convert some of the rust back to base metal and leave a protective coating to prevent further rust.

he was using a drill and wire wheel earlier but when I started filming it was getting late so he did not want to make much noise
