I save all my old motor oil and old gas and diesel and anything else like this and keep it in an old 55 gallon drum . I also have an old 100 gallon horse watering troth that I use when I get a find like these . I put the old oil fuel mix in the troth and if they will fit , I hoist the implement up and set it carefully into it's bath , sometimes for a couple months , depending upon the degree of rust and weathering , occasionally I'll take an old paint brush and wire brush , lift the implement up and give it a quick brush off , then re-dunk and when I'm ready I pull it out and wipe it semi dry before I set it on my bench to take it apart . I also have started photographing each stage of the disassembly with my digital camera and down loading it onto my lap top . 

Clean these bad boys up and maybe paint them but RE-LIFE em . 

Have fun .

If the roller drum is too far gone, save the ends of the drum and use them on a new drum. The ends are the hardest part to fabricate.
