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
Great result @212422! Many thanks for sharing.

Well done. The quality of these older tools can't be beat.They are comperable to the top of the range products available in the Hardware stores today.
Thanks for joining in the discussion @casper1. Great to see you also make your first post!
That’s truly impressive and also makes it really special if the tools have been handed down from a loved one 😊
