That shit works.
Again - if you have not tried this stuff you are missing out. It frigging works.
Had a nasty lockdown bar on my High hand project - made a dip tube from a 4" PVC tube & dunked it overnight. Holy crap! it's magic!
Probably will spray it with some clear sealer to prevent future rusting.
Quoted from SealClubber:
Definitely release the gas pressure from the pvc pipe each night. I let mine sit over the weekend because I was busy. When I went to pick up the pipe, the bottom cap popped right off. I lost a gallon all over the garage.
Improper glue job on the bottom cap. No way that should have come off with that little pressure.
I'm thinking about using some sort of heat wrap on my PVC tube for Evaporust, as it's cold out in my garage this time of year.
Has anyone done this, & what type did you use?
Quoted from Jjsmooth:
Wouldn't it be a bit easier to just take them in the house?
Yeah, but my wife would have a fit.
I think something like this - http://www.homebrewing.org/Carboy-Heater_p_1732.html - might just be the ticket.
Quoted from westofrome:
Where do you guys get your PVC - will a place like Home Depot cut to size for you? Was looking at lucite tubs but ones long enough for parts like lock bars have huge capacity (10 gallons+)
For pieces with both rust and gunk, do you recommend soaking in simple green first before evaporust?
An industrial plumbing supply place would be better/cheaper than Home despot. Schedule 40 PVC pipe is what you want.
Yes, just spray your gunky parts with simple green, scrub with brush & rinse them off before soaking in Evaporust. The less gunk that's on them, the better Evaporust will work. Also - Evaporust works better in warmer temps (above 65-deg). I wrap my PVC tube with a reptile warming pad when soaking on a cool garage.
Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:
Just joined the cult, let my toasted coindoor sit overnight.
Any recommendations for coating the door to make it look nice and shiny without spending more than $20?
Rustoleum makes a satin nickel paint that looks pretty good. I have been using it for stuff like the backside of coin doors & stepper frames after de-rusting them with Evaporust. Not sure how it would hold up on the exterior door, but Chicago coin used to paint their doors & they held up fairly well.
Just use rubber gloves, eye protection, & proper ventilation when using the stuff. I use it for stripping cabinets - works great & no worries about sanding that lead based paint.
Brush it on, let it sit for a while, & use course steel wool to remove paint, then rinse with water & Evaporust away.
