So basically, you immerse the metal in water, hook up a battery charger's positive side to a conductor separate in the water, and the negative side to the part itself? Hmm, guess I gotta try this out

I read of another trick, to use vinegar. I've tried this myself, but it didn't work out as shown in this link. I guess my vinegar may have been dilluted.

you need to use SUPER WASHING SODA, and set the charger to no more than 2 amps.

clearly it worked as seen in the pics.

Good method, much used by archeologists! Rust is basically an electric process and this method reverses it. The use of sode will increase the conductivity of water. Be sure to use soda since normal salt will also release chlorine gas (NaCl)

Be sure to vent the place since the charger will split the water in both oxygen and hydrogen!

I missed the part about the soda, and the pics didn't work for me the other day... (I can see them now)
