Brian, that looks like a new Dutch oven!  It came out looking great and no cost to speak of.  Thanks for sharing.

Brian, on those large pieces do you still use a 12VDC charger ? Or something like a 24/36 size?

 

I am still using the 2/10/50 Amp Schumacher 12v. charger set on 10 Amps.

great job on the dutch oven! Hard to beat cast iron for cooking.. Though Jo has quit usng most of hers, they are too heavy for her carpal tunnel wrists.

Nice! Glad she didn't catch you using her baking sheets for anodes.    :bigrofl:

Just Kidding!  I'll ad this to my memory banks for when I get an e tank set up.  Tractor parts first though.

I'm surprised she hasn't asked me to clean those for her. :(

Hey Brian,

 

If she gets anymore cast iron that needs to be cleaned, you can get the same results by putting the skillets, dutch ovens or whatever in your selfcleaning oven. Set the over for selfcleaning, insert your cast iron, shut the doors, and wait. When the cleaning process is done, wipe all of the cast iron down with olive or peanut oil. They'll look as good as new, and you won't have to stand in line to use your e-tank!

Troy, It won't remove 40 years of rust and dirt, will it??

That looks brand new.

How do you rinse off and treat your parts after they come out? I understand just washing them down with water, but what about flash rusting? I have a 55 gal plastic drum I want to use as tank to clean a tractor hood and an old 15 gal milk metal milk jug.

After the come out of the tank you will have to shoot them with some kind of oil. IF not they will rust in a matter of hours.
