OT - Need advice on removing Rust.
I purchased a piece of equipment off E-bay, and it has substantial rust on it. I need to remove all the rust, and I was thinking of naval jelly or some such animal. My concern, this is for food processing. I need to be able to clean any chemical I get on it. Once clean, I will paint the parts that do not come in contact with food normally with an oven black paint, the parts where food contacts, will be oiled to prevent future rusting.
BTW, I tried elbow grease, and there are just to many little corners, ridges, and such to do an adequate job. Another alternative is to have it sandblased, but I am trying to do this on the "cheap".
I would appreciate any advice.
On a side note, a friend told me they used pepsi to remove rust, anyone heard of this?
