Muriatic acid does wonders ! As you can see a few post above the rust




I'm sure you know this but thought it worth mentioning. Be sure to cook it in hot water and baking soda to kill the acid, otherwise it will continue to rust away. The hot water expands the metal opening the pores so the soda can get inside where the acid is hiding.

FYI for future use, for a better way to clean up small metal parts refer to Michael Faraday's theory of electrolysis. Here are some cast iron grates I restored using that method. My rectifier outputs 48 volts @ 27 amps so the process goes pretty quick. You can use something much smaller, it just takes a little longer. No need to deal with acid and the problems it brings.


I did not think about the hot water but I do use lots of baking soda and then water and repeat .the acid is pretty easy and cheap . I haven't had any problems with using the acid yet but I like the idea of not having a chemical to dispose of .

I use acid a lot for etching as well . It is very fast and effective .

This Otey Hercules furnace cement is awesome William! Thanks for the suggestion! So much better than rutlands

Also on the cast elbow going to the stove ... I have two holes for a bolt or screw in it to bolt to the stove but of course they don't match the holes pre drilled on the glenwood so I guess I just need to drill one on the bottom of the stove collar and put a bolt in right? Then put furnace cement in between the collar and piping ?

I sealed up the draft reducer on the side of the elbow it didn't fit up very well when closed and I don't foresee me needing it
