Evapo Rust - Still Impressive Evapo Rust - Still Impressive No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

This is my second review of this product. In my first review I show this amazing product on large pieces loaded with rust. Here I decided to clean up some small items. The great thing with this product is that it keeps the rust off for a long period of time, well over a year.


A close up of the rust

Below is my process as I cleaned several items that day. I do it much like what they say on the bottle.


I let the pieces soak in Evapo-Rust for a several hours


Then I rinse in plain water and let them drain/dry for a little while.

This is not on the bottle, but makes sence to me – Oil!

I then soak the pieces in oil. If you look at my previous post on this mentioned above, I believe this step is what helped me to get over a year before rust appeared on my table saw.


Let them drain and wipe off and you get this….

You can get this product at Harbour Frieght. Hope you have as much success with this as I have.

Tractor supply has it as well. It cleaned up an old rusty Stanley 110 plane. Buffed lightly with wire brush chucked in the drill press and it is good to go. Good stuff !!

Tractor Supply is $10 cheaper per gallon than HF.

Yep great product. Bought my Grizzly Cabinet Saw covered in a half inch of rust. Tried Vinegar, Oil, Even my beloved Boeshield, only thing that would touch it was good old EvapoRust. Took some elbow grease but it looks beautiful now! Since then I have used it to refurbish 4 Bandsaws and 3 Jointers.

Chris do you have any before and after photos of your saw? If you’ve not seen, check out my previos posting about this product. (see above) I have inherited my Dad’s tools and his Grizzly was loaded with rust to, as was the bandsaw. The results of this product were amazing and the before and after photos I took really show Evapo Rust’s power.

I used Evaporust for several years and bought it in the five gallon bucket. I loved it and never had a complaint other than the price. Then recently I tried Citric Acid. I found that it works just as well but it’s a tenth of the price. I use one ounce per one gallon of water and I can buy 10 ounces for $20.00
