Damn fine Magic too! I pulled the rest of the tools out and gave them a scrub. The cancer came off and left bare metal. I used a baster on the spark shaft and tire iron. Twenty minutes of that and it cleared up the stuff as well. Even got the pliers functional. When I drained off the fluid into a pop bottle (this stuff is too good to toss) there was at least a teaspoon of debris that had fallen off, no scrubbing.
