After having said all that about the weather, I just found out one of my daughters, who is in the process of moving, is rounding up bodies to get it all done this weelend. I'm waiting to see if I'm being "volunteered". :roll:

I wish you all the best with getting it done. I know here today and tomorrow it is suppose to get to 36° so the warm up has begun. It looks like Sunday is going to be the warmest day.

If you want to clean up those rusty parts without sandblasting or acid dipping see my post on this thread. The pics are cast grates I cleaned up. Easy setup, drop in the parts, wait, take out clean parts.

Thanks top top.

I don't have containers big enough to fit most of the parts of this 118 in to soak and rinse. But I do have a sandblasting garage and a bead blasting cabinet. I do sandblasting and glass beading as part of my antique auto restoration business, so parts this size are no problem.

Thanks Randy.

BTW, did you know it 's getting warmer because your tracking the weather? Or, is it because your burning up that garage load of wood in the Clarion ? :D

I understand, just thought I'd throw it out there. BTW, you could easily make a bigger tank by framing it out of lumber and stapling sheet plastic to it or even digging a hole and lining it like a fish pond. It just needs to hold water and when you're done it is non toxic, so just poke a hole in it and let it drain. What ever rust, paint, etc that comes off will be in the plastic tank. Just ball it up and dispose of it.

:D That would take awhile. By now, the ground's frozen a few feet down with the cold weather we've had. And working out doors here with water, . . it would be a race to which freezes first, . . the wash tank as it turns into an ice rink, . . or me ! :shock:

With a big enough rectifier the wash tank could double as a hot tub. :D

Last week my son had some truck parts in the tank. The timer on the rectifier switched off the power and it froze solid. He had to wait for it to thaw out before he could retrieve his parts. lol

No thanks ! I saw what happened when my brother had a hot tub. I don't want my neighbors over here drinking all my booze, . . . while I'm wondering why no one ever seems to need to use the bathroom ! :shock:
