I've had good results from a product called "The Must for Rust" available from K-mart and Wal-mart. Good on light rust, that is. The main ingredient is muriatic or a citrus based acid, I forget which. It leaves a white phosphur rust inhibiting coating that can be painted over. I used it for surface rust on a car after going over it with a wire brush wheel then 80 grit sand paper. This stuff lifted and cleaned the remaining rust and was relatively inexpensive.

Use diluted muratic acid. Pour in the water first, then add the acid, then
dunk in the parts. Store in a safe manner. Do not store near ANYTHING that will rust!

Use at your own risk. I take NO responsibility for this advice.
I reject your reality and substitute my own.
Well said, I was going to suggest it also, since I use it myself, but am always reluctant to suggest it to someone I don't know. Nice thing is it's cheap enough that you can buy a couple gallons and pour it into a PLASTIC pan like a oil change pan or something and just set the parts in and let them soak for a while. It gets into nooks and crannys where brushes can't go. Do it in a well ventilated area, and where it's safe from kids and pets, and just be careful.
