Default Removing “Exfoliated”, Hard Rust Buildup


I’ve been trying to clean off the rust buildup on the bottom of a Dixie Foundry #8. I started the piece off with easy off which removed some of the carbon/seasoning buildup. Then I put it in an E tank which removed the rest of the seasoning. It doesn’t seem to have touched the rust buildup on the bottom though. This is hard rust/iron which will chip off if hit hard enough with a flat head screwdriver. It’s also hard to tell which is the “exfoliated” rust and which is the pitted bare iron. Any suggestions?
