Evapo-Rust Rust Remover: amzn.to/3w8uCDW
Adam has recently been obsessed with watching restoration videos online, and there's something used in all of those videos that he absolutely loves: Evapo-Rust rust remover. Adam is a fan of how safe and effective it is to use, and how it can be reused over and over again too. Here's how it works on two pieces of rusted parts from the Tested studio and around the cave.

Hey, adam savage here in my cave with a tool tip that is a well it's a tool, but it's, a material tool tip.
Um, I've been working with steel for most of the time.
I have been a maker.
I have been a welder since 1990.
And when you work with steel, you have to deal with rust rust is just a thing that happens.
It happens in major ways.
It happens in minor ways.
And getting rid of rust has always been a thing that I have done in various ways either wd-40 or or steel wool.
And I've just discovered this new product, and it came about well, here's, what I'm here's.
What this whole tip is about is about this stuff, evapo, rust, super safe, rust remover.
I discovered this stuff while obsessing and going down the rabbit hole of watching youtube tool restoration videos.
And this is like the bread and butter of those videos.
So you're always seeing them soak a bunch of rusty parts in this stuff overnight and then pulling them out.
And they look fantastic.
I bought a gallon of this.
And it worked gangbusters.
I actually it's hard for me to sing the praises of this enough, it's, not like it's, a miracle fluid, but it is reusable.
So I've got it in a bin and I've regularly put parts in that bin over the last couple of months, and they keep coming out the next morning like looking fantastic.
So I thought I would do a demo for you of two different use cases, one kind of normal one extreme to see what I'm talking about.
There are plenty of rust removers on the market.
There are not a lot that are completely environmentally friendly and also safe to be in contact with your skin.
My parts washer, I don't mind touching the parts washer fluid, but it definitely dries out your skin.
And it says on the bottle, you know, don't use don't have constant contact.
This does not.
It is non-toxic biodegradable safe on the skin and eyes I'm not testing that and reusable.
I dig this stuff.
So, uh, yeah, the reusable is a really amazing thing here.
What I've got are two pieces that I am going to soak overnight in the uh evapo rust.
One is the steel barrel of norm's tomatsuki blaster, the blade runner blaster, this has been sitting out.
And as you can see, it's got a little rust pattern on it.
Now, like I said in the past, I might have done this with steel, wool and wd40.
But what if you've got a finish that you want to maintain what if you don't want a steel wool finish on your steel that's, where this comes in, it is literally like a touchless rust remover, which I really dig.
And then I went upstairs and found this monstrosity.
I thought let's just see what it can do so we're going to soak both of these uh up, uh, uh, completely immersed in the evaporator rust overnight and tomorrow morning, or for you 30 seconds from now we're going to see how we did there.
We go now there'll be a time lapse of me watching this all night long and then I'll open it up all right.
Uh, we are examining the wonderful properties of this evapo rust.
My new favorite rust remover.
When last I left you, I had poured some over, uh, uh.
Norms to manuzuki blaster barrel and also a crazy, crazy, rusty spring of mine and we're about to pull them out of the evapo rust and see how they did full disclosure.
The results you're going to see happen in my experience within 24 hours.
This has been soaking for three days, though, um.
So if you end up noticing that it's that my results are a little better than what you get after one night, uh, it may be that you want to soak it further.
I have not a b tested 24 hours versus 72 hours.
So your mileage may vary, but let's crack them and see how we did.
I've got a weird little hair right there somewhere.
Yeah, put the ah there.
There is norm's blaster barrel.
And here is my spring.
There we go.
So, uh, this stuff is totally safe for skin contact.
Um I'm, pulling this out without any wiping.
I believe you can see that it seems relatively smooth of any rust, but let's just hit it with a cloth.
Oh it's been it's been sitting on its base.
I probably should have pulled it after 24 hours, sorry, norm, um.
But here we go.
Yeah, I I know that's a little bit unfortunate.
But this is it's, literally the bottom of the barrel is it the bottom of the barrel? Wait, wait, wait, yeah, that's the bottom of the barrel.
Yeah, I had it sitting on its left side, uh, at any rate, the rust she is gone.
Yeah, I I love this stuff and I can pour this stuff right back in that bottle and use it again.
Here is the spring let's.
This was the tougher use case.
Let's, see how we did.
This was caked in rust all right let's.
Wipe this off.
Look at that it's.
Just all this rust is pouring off of it actually hold on.
So this is the final step for rust.
That is this intense the uh, the liquid has soaked in, but there's, no scrubbing action from the liquid.
I I you know, it's, not perfect.
I love this thing for restoring old tools.
This stuff is totally fantastic.
I am super happy with it, and I love that it's both reusable, and that it doesn't damage my delicate delicate hands.
Thank you guys for joining me for this tool tip, um, by all means share pictures of the things you clean of rust in the comments.
