Hi, I'm Tim Gipson, I'm going to talk to you about how to remove rust. Now there's a couple of ways you can - there are several ways that you can remove rust. You can - if you've got some heavy rusted parts you can get a commercial or chemical type of rust remover that's available in any home improvement store or hardware store. And you can also make your own rust remover in just some common things you have around the house. So if you have some baking soda, and some lemon juice or vinegar you can mix those together up in a paste and actually apply that to a surface and let it sit for a while. And you know, whether you're using a chemical or a homemade type of rust remover, if you have some tools or anything like that that are rusted, then you simply just spread that on, and what you want to do is you want to let that sit for several minutes to allow it to penetrate and dissolve that rust. Once you do that, you can just take a paper towel and you can wipe it and in most cases very easily you can - that rust will be removed. Now another thing you can use is - it's usually good to keep something like a WD forty around. WD forty we can just spray it on and then use a very fine sandpaper like a three-twenty or a four hundred and then just very lightly sand the surface. So if we do that as you can see, very easily we can remove - and a good thing about using WD forty or using a light oil is it also can condition your tools and make them a little less susceptible to forming rust on the surface. And actually be - particularly WD forty is a water displacement type of solution so it's specifically designed to keep water out, moisture out and keep things from rusting. So I'm Tim Gipson with some tips on how to remove rust.
