Anybody ever use the environmental friendly rust remover called Evapo-Rust? Sounds too good to be true for the price. I've found it for $20 a gallon.

Of course for those of us into vintage bikes rust removal is a major task. I've been looking for something to make it a bit easier. Many parts I just don't want to bead blast, either for reasons of contanimation or the destruction of the surface finish.
I came across this stuff:
http://www.orisonmarketing.com/corrosion/evaporust/evapo-rust.html

recommend in a vintage car article, thought I'd give it a try.

Results are here: http://www.jrbranson.com/showandtell-2.htm

Stuff is the tits...be patient, let it work, when they say it needs to be 60+ degree to work....it does. I put stuff in a jar with a light bulb next to it...get's up to about 98 degrees...works fasters that way.

Much better than tring to get every spec of rust with a power brush, scotch brite etc. Of course the surface remains pitted with badly rusted parts, you can always hit that with a power brush if you want it smoother...but this stuff gets all the nooks and crannies.

Worth it to keep a jug around. Obviously it works great on complex objects like the brake linkage in the photo.

I've since changed the photos in that link. But yeah, the stuff works great. Ideal for stuff you want to de-rust without destroying the underlying metal. Pretty impressive stuff. Takes a while to work though, and you have to have enough to submerge the part.
