The handle of my bevel gauge restoration came out a treat but I can’t get past the pitting in the steel arm.
I’ve tried grinding away with my 250 water stone but this will thin the metal too much, ditto with 120 paper.
So I’m trying to polish out the surface with wire wool. The surface is lovely and smooth to the touch but marred by the potholes.
The picture is after a while of buffing with plumbers grade wire wool and wd40.
Would a rust removal solution take away the discolouration? If so I can protect with wax so it doesn’t come back.
