Back to the surface rust question...I have bare metal laying around the shop in various stages of shaping, and sometimes I do not get back to a piece for months. For surface rust, I brush on some metalprep (or other mild phosforic acid solution) let it sit for a few minutes then work it in with the brush...kind of scrubbing...it is amazing how well this will clean up the metal, rinse, dry and go.
