I have been using Evaporust for some time to clean some old planes, and the stuff is simply awesome. I have two heavily rusted bit braces that I would like to dip, but I am concerned that the water based Evaporust will damage the wood handles. Has anyone done this? Any tips to offer or add?

Cheers!

I think it would be a good idea to remove any wood before dipping in the Evapo-Rust. The wood could also darken or stain and also swell up.

You can also wax the wooden parts and then soak some rags in the Evapo-Rust and then wrap them over al of the metal parts. Then wrap the rags with cellophane to keep them wet. Leave this set for a day and then clean up the tool. It should get most of the metal clean. You can repeat this step if necessary.
