I need to clean 60 lbs of rusted 5C collets. They are not badly rusted, but they are rusted. At first I thought to hire a kid to do it, but now I think that it would not help much with their insides, anyway.
My current plan is to just dump them into a bucket of diluted muriatic acid,then quickly washing in soda solution, then in hot water, then letting them dry under the hot Illinois sun.
I wonder what you think about this approach.i
