I have an antique cannon that had been left out in the elements for
some time. The interior of the barrel has rusted and gotten pitted.
I have been using penetrating oil and a stiff wire brush to clean it
and I've noted that rust is still being scrubbed out after a large
number of cleanings. I was wondering if there is anything that you
folks might suggest that would help break up the rust mre
efficiently. I don't want to use a Naval Jelly type product.
I've thought of electrolysis but space and equipment are an issue.
