How do remove rust spots from stainless steel Yahoo Answers

Yes, stainless will rust. The above link has helpful information on how to treat rust spots on stainless. The web site suggests using a mild acid, such as oxalic acid, which can be purchased at Home Depot or Lowes. Use a green scrub pad, as recommended. Hope this helps....

How much money should I spend on kitchen knives?


The most important kitchen knives are the paring knife, the cleaver, the fileting knife and the chef's knife. I personally use a German steel paring knife, which costs around $70, but you can spend as little as $20 and get an excellent knife that will do the job. On a cleaver you can spend a fortune, but you can find very good cleavers at around 10$(try at your local market).
On a chef's knife, the Prices for good knives range from around $40 to as much as you care to spend. I use a slightly smaller Japanese ceramic chef's knife and a German steel knife. As a filleting knife, I use a midlevel knife costing around $40. But there are excellent versions available for under $20.

What's a stainless steel?


Stainless steel does not stain, corrode, or rust as easily as ordinary steel (it stains less), but it is not stain-proof. There are different grades and surface finishes of stainless steel to suit the environment to which the material will be subjected in its lifetime. Stainless steel is 100% recyclable and is available in different forms, a stainless steel often used in knives pots and kitchen accessories.

Can not find replacement blades for delta jointer


I can't get a hit on that number, the model must be other. But it shouldn't be too hard.
Try to find a reliable sharpening service in your area; someone who does saw blades and knives for the cabinet shops will have a source for tool steel and carbide and can make you a set of knives for your jointer. Just get tool steel. While it won't hold it's edge quite as long as carbide knives, it will take a sharper edge to begin with, and should last just fine if you don't run sand through it.
If you have the original knives, hang onto them as they most likely can be resharpened to like new condition, and steel today ain't necessarily what it used to be.
The critical factor is the height. It's usually between 5/8" and 3/4" tall. You want them to be able to rest all the way down on the adjustable pistons without sticking up more than 10-15 thousands above the cutterhead. That will give you the most resharpenings from a set. You might want to invest in a magnaset to help with setting the knives in place.
Here's a link to the sharpening service I use: http://maps.google.com/maps?rls=com.microsoft:en-us&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=Precision+sharpening+%2B+Albuquerque,+NM&fb=1&split=1&gl=us&view=text&latlng=15322695688682105671
Finally, I would almost bet some contemporary delta replacement knives would work. If you find a place that will return your funds if they don't, you might be able to order them online. These guys will carry them if you can't find someone nearer you: http://woodworker.com

Woodchipper troubleshooting


Although chippers vary greatly in size, style, and capacity, the knives they use are similar. They are rectangular in shape and are usually four to six inches (10-15 cm) across by six to twelve inches (15-30 cm) long. They vary in thickness from about one-half to two inches (1-5 cm). Chipper knives are made from high grade steel and usually contain a minimum of 8% chromium for hardness.
