Pretty ingenious on the magnet! Looks like that evapo-rust is some good stuff. Is that phosphoric acid based?

You gonna seal it or just fill her up and let 'er rip?

Hoping sealer wont be needed.  I dont know what kind of magic goes into the evapo-rust.  But it says on the label,  Once it stops working.  Filter out the chunks and its safe to pour down the sink drain.
Smells kinda like anti-freeze, and depending how much stuff your doing it keeps working for a very long time.  I used my first gallon quite a bit for a few years.

The best part about it, for guns.  It doesnt effect good steel at all.  So its safe for bores and any engraving on the gun will be unharmed.  Unlike wire wheels or blasting or anything else.

It's listed as a chelator on its MSDS.  It's probably phosphonic acid and ammonia or something similar.  Basically a chelant plus an amine.

Re: Rachels, 72 CL100, Soldering...maybe just jb weld.
« Reply #56 on: May 24, 2015, 11:24:37 »
Scrubbed spots clean w emory and acetone.  Fluxed them, and the first (worst) spot looks pretty dang decent.



However, the second not so good.  At first the solder wouldnt stick at all, just a molten bead and it ran off tank.  So, more google instruction.

They say more heat.

Cleaned, fluxed and got her good and hot....maybe too hot?  Maybe burned off flux?  IDK? 

The solder did the same thing.  Beaded up and ran off.  However it stuck great in a spot next to the bad spot.   >:(



So just a smear of trusty old JB Weld will be the fix for this.    8)

Re: Rachels, 72 CL100, Its what you get you son of a bitch.

There now.  JB Weld is what this son of a bitch gets.  This medium is more my speed. 

Even did a few spots that I consider to be a non-issue.   ;D




So, the moral of the story is...

Proper order of execution.

1, Ensure tank is fuel free (no fumes) add nuts and bolts, tumble in clothes dryer (no heat) for an hour.

2, strip paint and clean

3, Let sit in Evapo-rust for 2 days

4, drop off at radiator shop and let them solder up holes.
