Frustrations with Rust and my experiment protect my tools Part 1

10-10-2014 03:39 AM by molan | 12 comments »

I was out in my garage the other day and went to start a project. Reaching into my toolbox and retrieving a hand plane the first thing I noticed was that it was rusting. Agian! I had just cleaned the rust off of all my planes a little over a month ago and already they were showing signs of new rust. There is nothing more frustrating than spending my free time cleaning rust off of my tools over and over again. I need to find a better way to protect my tools. I already keep them stored in a ...

Restoring Woodworking Hand Tools #1: How to Remove Rust from Woodworking Tools

04-29-2014 01:26 PM by WoodAndShop | 6 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I’ve tried almost every method to remove rust from metal parts! In the above VIDEO I show my favorite method for removing rust from metal parts – specifically traditional woodworking hand tool parts – but it’ll work for most other metal parts, like auto parts. Click here to read the original blog post with links. But first let me tell you about the other methods that haven’t worked very well for me: -Electrolisys with a car batt...

Handplanes #1: Rust Removal & Rust Prevention

02-07-2014 12:54 PM by OSU55 | 3 comments »

A lot of folks use electrolysis for rust removal, which works great and if you are going to do a lot of rust removal, I recommend it. I don’t do a lot of it, and find Evapo-Rust works spectacularly to clean up even pitted parts. The product is reusable, so a gallon jug lasts quite a while. I have some different sized plastic containers depending on the size of parts, and completely submerge the parts. I cover the container to limit evaporation (Saran Wrap works great if you don’t have a lid)....

Zerust Anti-Rust Liners #1: Table Saw Rust Protection

05-05-2013 12:59 PM by JohnH2889 | 0 comments »

I just signed w/Lumberjocks…I have a new Steel City table saw, model 35990C, and am concerned about table top rust. My saw is kept in my unheated Wisconsin garage, and the temperature/humidity can have fairly wide fluctuations. I read a few entries concerning Zerust anti-rust liners, particularly the Zerust lined plywood cover made by CueballRosendaul. My question is: Has anyone used Zerust liners for rust protection?...and…Does it seem to work? I can be reached at jkhien@att.net

I miss my shop in the winter. #2: SPRING!

03-29-2013 11:44 PM by gforcegarcia | 14 comments »

Well, I finally got out in the shop for the first time in 2013! I covered my tools with tarps to slow the winter rust. It wasn’t too bad. A little surface rust on the tables. Nothing some WD-40, T-9, and paste wax couldn’t handle. I also decided to remove the Rockler router table from my table saw. I could never get the height right. It made it hard to cut accurately.I am still going to use the router table, but build a new dedicated base for it. I upgraded my lighting this wint...
