Removing rust – the experiments (v): Evaporust epilog

As a final word on using Evaporust, here are a couple of extra experiments. The first is the lateral adjustment lever mentioned in the previous post. You can see the visual difference between the rust-free region on the left, and the rusty region on the right. This took 2-3 hours.

And finally, a rusty cast iron lever cap. After spending about 4 hours in the Evapo-rust, presto! rust-be-gone!

    Thank you for this series. Out of curiosity for the Evaporust, have you let a part sit for an extended time to see if it does anything to the metal itself and not rust?

      I have left pieces in for 7-10 days, and there is no apparent issue with the Evaporust effecting the metal once the rust is gone. After the rust goes, there is always a dark gray coating left on the metal.
