    I just tried this on a rusted stuck distributor, one overnite soak and ALL rust dissolved, freed up the distributor and not one drop of sweat lost. Impressive material. Better living through chemistry I guess.

    Here's one model of the vibratory tumbler from Harbor Freight, though listed at $59.95:

    Caswell Plating has kits for putting black oxide coating back on bolts, though my experience with using it and putting clear overcoat on it was that it isn't too rust resistant. I might have over-baked the clear coat, though.

    I have used the Eastwood tumbler for the last three years with excellent results. I have put anything that would fit into the basket and whatever it was, bolt, nut, brackets, hardware came out clean. My only complaint was having to listen to the racket.

    With the electrolytic system, you don't have to wire brush anything "before and after", usually a water rinse and maybe a rub with a Scotch bright pad will take you down to nice metal. The solution never wears out, but if it gets too rusty, I pour it on the lawn. It's not toxic, only rusty water and a washing soda. You have to try it to believe how well it works.

    JDP, what do you do with the waste water? I'm pretty sure it probably is not potable water ever again. Can you let the city take care of it in the sanitary system or will it affect a septic or aeration system?

    Excuse my ignorance gentlemen, but what exactly are you purchasing from Harbor Freight? You mention 40 dollars, but no description or name of what you are buying. I gather that it is a tumbler of some sort, possibly a rock polisher? Please enlighten me.
    JDP, I like that idea of electolysis for removing rust and scale, never would have thought of that, I think I will try that. I gather one could use a small trickle type battery charger. How much current does one conduct through the water, (ie amps)?
