+1 on the blueing. Next time, if it’s a Starrett it’s probably hardened and you can skip the evaporust and go straight to rubbing with 400 or 600 grit. It will take the bad stuff off and polish the hardened metal underneath without scratching. That also works for non-Starrett rules that are hardened of course – they usually have a big H at the end of the model #.
