ELECTRIC RUST REMOVER

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

ELECTRIC RUST REMOVER

Postby PAWPAW601 » Fri May 15, 2015 8:18 pm

New member here, thought someone could use this project to build. I used a 55 gallon plastic soap drum and took jig saw to cut drum top off about 3/4 way up. Fill drum with water and mix 1/2 box of Arm & Hammer washing powder in water. Cut 4 peices of rebar long enough to stick out the top, with rebar standing up around drum on inside connect each with wire, this will be the negitive. Cut another piece of rebar long enough to lay across top of drum, this will be positive. Get the part that needs derusting and hang with wire from positive rebar into water mix. Take a 10 amp battery charger and connect accordingly. Leave this over night in drum. The next morning it should be rust free after a little bushing with a wire bush to knock off the residue thats left.

Just got word that the positive and negative should be swapped. Maybe this will be even better to get rid of the rust. Thanks for the help.

I just dunked a Gravely part in my tank for a friend of mine. It has been an indispensable tool for me over the years, especially for a couple of plows that had heavy rust on the beams.

Here's a link that shows three different setups: http://www.cleancomputes.com/Cub/FAQ's, ... index.html
