Fantastic Nigel, having read your other post I'm really looking forward to the updates and any period / up to date photos you may have
kind regards Russell
Photographs are likely to very sporadic, as I don't photograph everything and I only have my 35 mm colour-reversal film processed, once I get to the end of a roll.
Russell, you're not so far from my childhood home in Lochee, Dundee, Angus. My nursery-school teacher used to take me to RAF Luchars in Fife, to see the English Electric Lightnings take off.
Yep, I suppose there are items that can be treated in acid as you have identified. To be honest I have always been a user of 'the tool' (wire brush), flap wheels and surface prep wheels (heavy duty scourers) they are pretty good for rust removal with limited damage to surfaces.
The methods you describe, only remove surface rust and rust-scale. They will NOT
remove rust from any small-diameter pits unless your abrade away the surrounding steel, which might leave your items very thin.
FABULOUS!! I know it well as when i was at Uni i had a flat on Charleston Drive in Menzieshill and used to go to the shops at Lochee often...still haven't found anything to beat a Clarks the Bakers Pie!!
