    The finds I've got sat in oil will probably be coming out soon, hopefully that will force any water and salts out of the metal. I suppose the next step will be to try the vingar method to remove the rust.

    Hi Steve.

    It's great the vinegar method I'd highly recommend, have a look at my Pre DDay battlefield thread, my last post I think you missed when off line, it shows an example. I have since cleaned another steel mortar fin which was a lump of rust and it took it back to bare metal and its even possible to read markings stamped into the steel, I haven't posted it yet but will soon. But afterwards remember to soak in water overnight to remove the vinegar coz it stinks .

    Anyway Guys have a Great Christmas, here's too rescuing more relics in 2012

    I picked out the worst, dirtiest, rustiest nasty thing and left it in vinegar for a week. This is what came out!

    I was impressed to say the least.

    My plan now. When I next (properly) clean with this method. I will leave it for about 5-7 days. Once each day, take them out and give it a quick gentle scrub with a stiff brush to get the loose crap off, then put it back in the vinegar making sure its the other way up. This should give far better results too.

    I will stock up on vinegar and get an big air-tight box ready for our next group dig.

    Only bad thing about using this method is the smell! Its horrid, my workshop/conservatory now smells like a chip shop.
