Very nice. Do you clean them with an electrolysis tank?

Lye and electrolysis. Lye first. After that is elbow grease.

Nice.

I've cleaned a bunch of pieces and recently discovered the benefits of vinegar and water, after lye and the e-tank. Several 30 minute soaks in a 50/50 solution really cleans up the staining. Gets the pieces pretty dang clean.

Thanks Mike. I have used vinegar in the past and did not like it. I may need to revisit, especially for stubborn rust and stains. Happy hunting,
Kyle

I forgot to mention cleaning with a magic eraser at the end. Takes off the final bit of carbon. Just a thought, though it does an expense! Anyway, cheers!
