So there’s two approaches for Evapo-rust…
1. submerge part
2. for large parts, lay paper towels or rags on top and saturate, then cover with plastic to avoid evaporation.
It seems that many of the posts by guys going with option 2 result with odd stains as the products of chelation (carbon bonded to iron??) are deposted in certain areas more than others…..
So I set off on a hunt through the house, basement, attic and barn to find a tub large enough for the 27” x 8” extention tables…. (we only have umpteen hundred of these things half full of junk in various locations)... NO JOY!!!
But then a trip to the kids toy closet….. what’s that I see…. an jumbo sized bin used to store a whole lot of Barbie Dolls…... BINGO!!!!
I dumped ~2/3 a gallon and put the first ext. wing in upside down, resting on some small plastic checkers…..
Here’s the set up…..
putting the top back on to avoid evaporation…..and off two watch a movie….
Three hours later…. WOW!
Spray off with garden hose…. wipe with paper towels…. spray again…. dry and then spray with WD40 to prevent flash rust….
Too late to get pic of finished product up…. so I’ll keep you in suspense untill tonight.
