Rust removal via electrolysis
Hey guys, I have adrum that i just finished the burnout, stripping, repainting, and drilling for the shelves and ports.
Unfortunatly i forgot one part.... I have some light surface rust on the inside of the drum i was planning to electricute off. But now with the holes in the drum i will have to seal, and the stainless parts exposed to the process i'm a bit concerned.
Do you think the electrolysis will strip the stainless parts? how long should i zap it for a light surface rust. deeply pitted parts usually get 24 hours. I am thinking of trying six to ten and see where i'm at.
Do i need a electrolite like baking soda, or does it work with clean water as well?
A grinder and my head inside a steel drum does not sound like a good day.
