After taking a whole day to clean rust spots off my nice tools, I got smart and finally closed the damn cabinet doors. I blogged about it here… http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2014/8/19/a-tool-cabinet-not-a-tool-display-case Thanks
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...
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)....
In this blog I am going to give you a how to on my metallic finish of copper patina and rust application on wood As you can see I started with a small vessel that has been hollowed. This vessel is about 5 inches in heigh. I only want to rust the top as I am going to copper patina the base. The rust paint is a paint from Michaels which is a hobby store here in the USA. The paint is very thick and contains metal flake. It is put on very heavy and allowed to dry. Here I have applied...

not much to see yet – i found a very rusty draw knife at an antique store and talked them down from $5 to $3 – here it is, as found…
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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...
I desperately want a drawknife. They’re difficult to find here in South Africa.I found and bought one that’s in pretty shocking condition. For the equivalent of $18.So my only hope to own a functional drawknife is to repair / recondition / restore the one I have.Despite how crazy it is I’m not just going to do the minimum to get a working tool out of it, i’m going to re-imagine the whole thing. Nothing major like going from straight to curved blade shape. But since i w...
A good friend of mine came across this old vise. It was rusted a bit when he got it. We didn’t get any pictures of it in its original condition though. I recommended he use the molassas method of de-rusting it. He did that for a couple of weeks. We then took it to the car wash to spray it off and then dry it off. He scrubbed it a bit, then lubricated it a bit to loosen up a few joints and it works like a charm. I’ve never seen one of these quick-release mechanisms bu...
