I’m rebuilding a 1952 12”-14” Delta radial arm saw which turned out to be more rusted than I thought. I had read recently about this Evapo-Rust product and decided to give it a try and wow it really works quite well. Here’s some before and after pics.
I thought I was going to have to chuck this in my lathe and have at it with sandpaper, instead I just soaked it overnight in Evapo-Rust and rinsed with Simple Green under the faucet, effortless!
Here’s another example, no easy way to get down into the raw casting but a soak in Evapo-Rust got the job done easily.
Finally some facts about this great product. Its biodegradable and safe for drains and sewers. No acids, no toxins, no petroleums or solvents. Its water based. Safe for steel, aluminum, brass…wait for it…safe for plastic and paint also. It has no obnoxious odors and can be reused over and over until its no longer effective. Its made in the USA and available of all places at Harbor Freight. I paid about $22 for a gallon and it saved me a gob of time on this project.
Evapo-Rust it earned the rare 5 star rating from me.
