    Frequently I use all types of scrap metal in making my granite furniture . Often with lots of rust , sometimes a nice look othertimes a problem . One product I have found that has worked well for me is one Step Rust Treatment . Has prevented rust so far on some exterior metal i primed a couple of years ago . Very inexpensive at 47.00 a gallon plus shiping . Shown in the photo are the metal componets of my granite coffee table . Could be of interest Will show process in making the table later .

    This rust stop seems like the perfect solution to keep that rustic look but also maintaining longevity. Thanks for the heads-up Gerald.

    Thanks Hong an Jason .
    I have had good results so far with rust stop treatment .
    I just used it on a walk way to my wood deck . The deck project will be shown later . The walkway are concrete road crossing boards . These concrete
    Crossing boards are 2 x 7″ x 9 ‘ x 10″ thick . weighing in around 2700 lb an are framed in steel .
    The steel was rusty an was a little to orange .
    So I used one step to not so much to protect but tone down the color .

    I’ve tried many different types of rust treatments, from Naval Jelly to Rustoleum products. But the very best I ever found was a Jasco product. I can’t find it in the stores anymore. I’m thinking that some of Jasco’s product lines were bought out and some may be discontinued. It was one of those easy to use liquids that turned the oxidation to a primer. It worked really well on a badly rusted evaporative cooler.

    Also, I just remembered something that works very well on mild cases of rust – just make a paste of baking soda and vinegar. Believe it or not, it works!!

    Wow Gerald that was very informative! I have a old Rail Road spike from the days of Hawaii sugar cane, I found it working out on the ewa plane where the cane used to grow. It looks just like those bolts did. I want to restore it and make a paper weight out of it.
