Reviving rusted tools

I have been hanging onto my late Fathers tools and decided to try to revive them, so using what I had on hand, I soaked in rust converter,  scrubbed with a wire brush, then polished with autosol. Voila , I am mildly pleased, although my husband suggested later to use a flappy disc thing, but I don't walk around with one in my pocket generally lol

That’s truly impressive and also makes it really special if the tools have been handed down from a loved one 😊
