Hi all, Im trying to remove some heavy rust on some metal pieces. I have heard that naval jelly works wonders. How do you use that stuff? Do i need to knock off the old rust. Will it eat away the rust and just leave the metal? DO i spray it, let it soak, wash it off and then scrap off the rust? Thanks for the help lojack

You brush it on, let it set, then rinse it off. Take of any flaking rust with a brush first. [b]Don't[/b] get it on your skin or anything you don't want to damage the finish on!

You apply it with a paint brush or sponge, and allow to sit 5-20 minites, depending upon severity of rust. If there is lots of loose rust, it's a good idea to clean the pieces with a wire brush before applying the naval jelly. Just be careful, as it contains phosophoric acid. Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

i've used this stuf and never thought it was very effective. maybe removing as much rust as possible first might make a difference.

Be careful, the stuff does not seem to do a good job on heavy rust, but it'll certainly do the job on blueing, parkerizing, zinc, aluminum or chrome plate, and any paint job around. If it's big enough, just use a grinder.
