Electrolysis works great at removing all japanning WITHOUT doing any harm to the underlying metal. All it takes is a 2-10amp car battery charger, some copper wire, a couple of scrap pieces of steel plate (or the like), a 5gal bucket of large shallow plastic tub, and some some Washing Soda (local grocery store item—cheap).
