I try my hand at electrolysis rust removal using a steel pipe, a 12v car battery charger and some water with baking soda.
If you don’t have a car battery charger, you can also use a car battery or even an AC/DC power supply.
I remove rust from more tools and allow the electrolysis process to go for around 3 hours.
In part 1 I explained the equipment you need and how the basic process works to remove rust using a 12v battery charger. This time I’m using the exact same process but with more tools being recovered and allowing it to run for 3 hours instead of 30 minutes.
This is a quick, cheap and easy DIY solution for removing rust from your tools, car parts, antiques and so on.
In this video I also tested using a 12V 10A power supply but it only pushed out around 4 or 5 watts while the 12V battery charger was able to push out 17 watts.
