Is that safe for the brazing? It probably is, but I never hear of anyone using electrolysis on carbide TS blades. I m asking because I don t know.

I’ve done carbide tipped blades and it didn’t seem to have any adverse effects on them. Maybe if you used one as the sacrificial anode it might though. But if you don’t feel comfortable with the process, then just dunk it in some evapo-rust instead. Laid flat in a shallow container, you wouldn’t need much and you can re-use it over and over again on all the other smaller rusty stuff you have. I have an old gallon paint can about half filled with it, with a wire basket in it for dunking nuts, bolts, washers and other little items. I love the stuff, and it’s also a lot less messy :)

Hold on a bit, and I’m sure others will chime in about other methods as well (citric acid, molasses, etc…)
