I AM the KING - Removing Rust!
« on: August 05, 2013, 06:23:39 PM »
Most folks know that my basement was hammered by Super Storm Sandy - 36" of salt water, mud and sand.  Evey metal part that was in the water rusted - I spent 'week's bringing as much of my reloading equipment, etc back to life.
Here's a before and after picture of some of the gun parts (part of 3 boxes) that were under water and the results of removing the rust ...
BEFORE:
 

AFTER:

Next step - make a bluing tank and blue the parts.

This was accomplished using a rotary tumbler - abrasive plastic media - Stat-O-Sheen burnishing solution and a squirt of Dawn

For 105 bullet molds, I used electrolytic de-rusting and an ultra sonic cleaner

Great Job, was just browsing sonic cleaners and tumblers the other day too.  Hmm...
