Dealing with rust issues
Heavy fog over the past 3 or 4 mornings is causing me major rust problems and my favorite vise rusted. I have only 3 walls and a roof to keep the rain out, but donít have a clue as to what to do about fog. I only just put it outside a few days ago, but never experienced fog before living in the desert.
I donít understand because it has a roof and I had an old towel thrown over it to keep it clean. It doesnít feel wet although everything else is dripping water. The humidity is about 85% right now, but the sun is supposed to drop it down to 34%.
Iím going to clean all this rust off and I guess Iíll have to paint it, but I canít paint everything. Will WD40 keep the rust off or is there some other way I can cover it to keep the moisture out? I donít really want to put doors on it, but Iím thinking about putting up some old shower curtains tonight to see if that will help.
Oh, is there a rust removal gel that I can just spread over the vice to remove rust without dipping it into something?
Iím a die hard DIY guy. Donít tell me to hire someone for what I can do myself.
