Question about Cars & Trucks
What is best way to clean up some very old rusty hand tools
Hydrochloric acid, known as muriatic acid. The 20% concentrate is available in nearly any hardware store. You can leave your tools in it until the rust is broken down and dissolves.Use this in a well ventilated area as the stench can be quite bad. Also use rubber gloves and wash hands thoroughly afterwards.Wear eye protection too in case of splashes.
Once the tools are done soaking, remove and dry them, then lightly cover them in an oil or WD-40. Any moving tools such as ratchets may have to be stripped and cleaned before lubrication with grease.
