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.


The cast iron skillet I rinsed off with hot water and a Scotch Bright pad and oiled it up with Olive Oil immediately.


The GT parts, I rinse and Scotch Bright them, The Hot water 160F makes them dry fast, I then wipe them down with mineral spirits and dry again, then shoot them with Etching Primary immediately.


If I don't have time to work on them when they are done, I just leave them in the tank til I can, it doesn't affect them staying in the tank.

That did turn out looking like new :thumbs: .  Hard to beat cast  iron for cooking, once you get used to it.  I wonder if there may be a market for cast cookware cleaning service in your area, might be time to branch out Brian.


Oh and I knew someone would come through, thanks for beating me to the punch Daniel.
