  1. Ive used evaporust in the past but ive never painted over it. And ive only soaked things in it, does it work if its brushed on? Or does it have to be submerged?
  2. I could always use more air pressure. Ive blasted a lot of metal but this is the first time ive encountered this many rust blooms. It seems like the rust started under the paint and had 34 years to bloom under the paint. The paint and rust cleaned up easy, but these blooms seem to be little fissures in the metal that's holding onto rust. I will look up eastwoods rust converter. Thank you
  3. Thanks, I tried to keep blasting but I cant seem to get all of it. There is way too much metal to spend hours and hours trying to blast it all off. It seems like the sand is to course to get into the fine grooves of rust. I know its like cancer which Is why I blasted in the first place, but I cant get it all clean to my satisfaction.

  5. Im restoring a piece of machinery and I sandblasted all the metal, however, the sandblasting didn't remove the rust from tiny pits in the metal. I am worried that if I prime and paint it wont last long. What is the best product to convert or neutralize the rust before prime and paint? Is citric acid good enough or is there another product? Whats the best way to neutralize the citric acid or other product after treatment? Should it be sandblasted after rust treatment to get rid of any small particles? Suggestions would be appreciated. I don't want to put all this work in just to have

    A cowboy rides into town and his first stop is at the saloon to quench his thirst. The bartender is known to be a gambling man and a drinker, so when the cowboy enters and orders a whiskey the bartender get the bottle and glass out and while he is pouring he asks the cowboy if he is a betting man. "I've been known to." Said the cowboy The bartender says "how would you like to a free drink?" "Sure" says the cowboy. "What do you want to bet on?" The bartender thinks for a second and says "I bet you a whiskey that you cant make your horse laugh." Without saying a word th
