    Not bad but you'll have to get rid of the sand now, with the very fine chips you can reuse it quite a few times before changing, or you can wash them, something that you cant really do with sand without causing a real mess, oh by the way I hope thats not one of the good towels or you'll be in big trouble

    Most excellent thread.
    I had only ever thought about going the electrolysis route.

    Here is a new update on my helmet cleaning. I did not have time yesterday, so it spent another 24 hrs in the vinegar, making it about 50 hrs straight. In total it has been in the bath for 3 days. Today i also scrubbed it down with a rough steel wool pad. Here is the result. Does anyone know if vinegar can eat steel???
    Vinegar will eat steel. At least the carbon steel knives, I have used it on.
    I used vinegar to stain some customized carbon steel knives. I made the mistake of honing the knife to the finest edge I could give it before exposing the edge to vinegar and 24 hours of immersion not only stained the blade as I wanted, it also ate the very thin edge on the knife leaving a (very) jagged edge. I was a bit surprised, but simply honed the knife again. One learns and does not repeat that particular mistake again.

    Out on the town, I was once provoked by a hooligan complete with unibrow.
    With a disarming smile, I called him a nice troglodyte.
    He evidently thought it a compliment, because he backed down.
    Im still waiting to get jumped by him on a friday evening at the pub, as he is sure to have consulted the aforementioned dick-shun-ary in the meantime.

    I like the look of those, cleaned but still looking aged not super shiney like some clean routes achieve !
