A few years ago, I posted a video with instructions for rust removal using Electrolysis. Lately, I have been seeing a lot of rusty machines that have been found or purchased, so I thought it might be time to repost this method for review... It is also great for restoring rusty tools, etc.
This YouTube video seems to be one of the most complete explanations that I have found:

Hope this helps, as it works extremely easily and better than other methods I have tried. I have used this method with great success on some ver rusty parts, just remember to use Arm & Hammer "Washing Soda" (WalMart carries it) and not "Baking Soda". Good luck.
