I watched the YouTube video through and, with the four options they compared,
it looks like Evapo-Rust came out the winner. I wish they'd added POR-15's
product, "Metal-Ready," to the mix. I like the stuff, but it's really pricey:
About $15 for a pint bottle. Great for small parts -- screws, nuts, nails --
but too costy for big articles.
I see that Evapo-Rust is available at prices between about $9 and $25 for the
same gallon jug. Walmart is on the high end at $19.05. I'll check around with
local industrial suppliers here, too. There's no Tractor Supply near me (okay,
one on the other side of town, about 15 miles away) but I might give them a
shot: they're only a block or two away from the place I buy my POR-15 products.
