I'm not quite clear on small parts...more specifically, how to submerge the one or several completely....can the negative connection be in contact with the water in order to keep in dangling?..or as I think about it, I would secure the neg. side to a board or something...then uses aligator clips from the neg. connection on the charger to the tool...but sill wondering, in this scenario, if the aligator clip/tool connection can be submerged?
-and doing one at a time would take forever...wondering if ther is a way I can 'daisy chain' several together...
Do u have a recommendation for oiling the tool? sounds like being hand tools, like wrenches, I would want some kind of a spray coating instead...
The negative contact can be submerged. Instead of daisy chaining, I would go point to point home runs to the negative contact of the charger. Pick up a dozen or so Alligator clips and crimp a wire to them, then tie the other ends together for the negative terminal. Experiment with a couple of pieces first. Re-bar is not the ideal stuff as sometimes it is coated. bare scrap iron with lots of surface area is the best.
As for oil... I like lithium grease. You can get the spray kind. Good to have around. I give a light coat of lithium grease to any metal that will outdoors. I sprayed down my Snow Blower right after I bought it and it still looks brand new after 8 years.
