    Restoring rusty tools.

    Several years ago I inherited 3 generations of shop tools and equipment. What a legacy has been left by my uncles, grandfathers, and my own father! Many of the hand tools; planes, saws, etc. are very rusty (not all pitted). My question to the collective experience out there is what the best rust removal treatment or program might be suggested? I hope to restore most of these beauties back to as close to original as possible and use them as they were intended. Bring on the opinions! Experience builds knowledge.

    umm....the link doesn't work for me. I have a couple of old hand tools that need restoring as well.... mostly rust and possibly some acid corrosion.

    Here's a good description of using electolosis to remove rust.
