    I use a technique like the one shown in the video below for surfaces. Works great.

    For smaller items, I use either evaporust which I get at Harbor Freight or an electrolysis bath, depending on the size of the item. Bigger things like handplane castings tend to get the electrolysis, while smaller items (hardware for handplanes, etc) get evaporust.

    thats another reason i want to look around to see if i can pick up some razor blades, they seem pretty dead useful. I seem to only find the double edge ones which kinda suck for applications like this, the last time i ended up cutting my thumb open on one of those.

    Here you go…

    Just wondering, do these really work better than any blade replaceable knife in the tool section or are they any differant than a carpet knife with replaceable blades and a handle.

    I have found that these razor blades in a holder of some sort work better than a utility knife or carpet knife. I think it may have to do with the flexibility of the blade, I don’t know but for scraping paint off windows, rust off tools and that sort of thing, they can’t be beat.

    Yes single edge razor blades are great for scraping paint or rust when used in a holder. I go through a bunch in a week.

    I use a wire wheel on my bench grinder.
    Last rescued tool was a Wiss snip.

    That works, it is just too much work LOL. A good metal soak like WD-40 Rust Remover or Evaporust would have that tool cleaned up in a few hours time.

    You should be able to find these in the big box stores in the paint department.
    I have some older scrapers that hold the single edge blade and I’m almost positive that they came from the paint dept.

    I use wd40 too but I’m thinking to get a sand blaster and welding machine next. I’m gonna start building some pure metal tools. Of course first one is gonna be Bosch bench cutoff saw. Then I’ll get sand blast and welding machine. I need to sand blast couple stuff . Did anyone see the laser rust remover. Check the video guys lol https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CLaBFkeHG0A

    10 minutes work. Instead of a few hours.
    I will try the WD-40 Rust Remover or the Evaporust when I have spots that can’t be reached by a wire wheel.

    I have a dedicated 6″ grinder with a fine and course wire wheel on it. It can really save time removing rust for nuts and bolts that I have taken off my car.

    True. Just got a sleeve of 100 for 10 bucks. I would guess anywhere you’d find a box of blades you’d also find something to hold them.

    I’ve got several of these types of blade scrapers and they have got to be decades old.

    Yeah I have one with a long handle that I got. I find myself reaching for it for lots of jobs. It’s this one:

    Got it as a freebie somewhere along the way.

    The best thing is a bead blast cabinet. No mess always set up to go for a quick job.
