For rust I would use a mild abrasive such as a Scotch brite pad or steel wool to remove the loose stuff. Anything tight will be sealed over by the seasoning.
I've seasoned some stuff using the routine recommended here: http://sherylcanter.com/wordpress/20...ing-cast-iron/
Fat little pancakes made with buckwheat flour sound like something I would like!
I was wondering what the self-clean cycle would do to the rust. I was just about to ask.

Thanks gang for your never ending knowledge!! Now I know what it's really for! BTW, I have an electrolysis tank set up. Now THAT'S the way to remove rust!
It's real simple to do, with absolutely no damage to the original piece.
Thanks... I bookmarked that site.
I doubt it would be worth building an electrolysis tank, but I did read on how to do it.
