Cheers, I know what ill be looking for down at B&Q tomorrow!
You can get oxalic acid from your local pharmacy. CVS here. I got some and it works well with the little odds and ends stuff I've tried it on. I hope to get another helmet to really see.
Ok guys here is the result of using 'Rust Remover'
This is what i started with..........
And this is what i ended up with after leaving it to soak over night. All i did after the soaking was wash in warm soapy water and then dry. No rubbing or ANYTHING !!!!
It even revealed a mark i had not previously been able to see !!!
And here's the stuff you should get Halfords sell it
Hope this helps you guys
Hi Relichunter, did you id the item you cleaned up? I cannot recall now if it was one that you asked about on the forum (there has been so much stuff ). Anyway, I now know what it is.
For heavens sake keep up !
This item is a bomb pistol, found on my ww2 airfield along with other items. AND...I must say, there has been 'so much stuff' but 95% has now been identified thanks to people like yourself
Glad you knew That was correct BTW
Carry on digging!
very nice job on the cartridge cleaning Relichunter!
