Electrolysis

Article about: I think you should only use iron in the solution. I don't know for sure but it might make some toxic gasses, or react with the item you are cleaning. Again, i don't know for sure what happen

    Hmmm faster results it's tempting
    Maybe i should use it. I don't worry about toxic fumes, as i run the project outdoors.

    And this Soviet mortar round. I bought this from a local digger in Narva and it had a nice silver color. I packed it and shipped it to my address but when i opened the box it was a bit rusty. I used electrolysis to clean it and it has become black. I have read that it's natural to get this color but the question is when is it going to become silver again?

    Thanks mate. But do you remember the nice silver color the mortar round had when we went to Robo?

    Hello mate

    Nice setup A few tips. Try and create a sort of ring of iron bars. Also the black color can be removed with vinegar and a small metal brush. Leave in vinegar for some hours. Sometimes i leave them 12-24 hours. Maybe not needed with such a long period. Just turn on the hot water and scrub the item with the metal brush and you can see the black residue comes off. Dry with hair dryer. Apply a thin coat of oil or other preserving agent. I will see if i have some pics, but i cleaned a MG34 bolt up really good. A lot of other items too.

    Maybe some have better methods but this works for me. Estland is correct on the stainless.

    Regards, Lars
