  1. Very interesting piece of information, thanks! Yes! Safety first, I have a construction background, I was definitely using respirator and eye protection.
  2. Howdy Frosty! I guess I can be What's Happening for short! Thanks for the input. My pics are post drill wire brush attachment, plus some elbow grease wire brush in some tight spots. I started with a cup brush, switched to the wheel. I'll have to look into the twisted/ knotted wire brushes, I was worried about being too aggressive. I do have an angle grinder, but thought the drill might do less damage. I read somewhere lower speeds were better... Would putting the wax or linseed oil on trap rust pockets if I'm not able to get every bit brushed off? Or should I just keep working it until it's buffed up?
  3. Howdy! I'm new to the sport, and my dad just revealed he had this awesome Trenton 135lb farriers anvil. It had been sitting out open to the weather (but not in the weather) for probably the last 15 years- covered in a layer of greenish moss and rust. We immediately got it indoors, and I took a wire brush to the moss/rust coat. Took steel wool to the face. I'm trying to figure out how to remove all the rust, so I can get it properly dry and coated in oil/wax and keep it from rusting further. Long term, I will need to store this in my dad's barn, which isn't completely enclosed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I believe this anvil was made in 1911, and has been passed down. I really don't want to ruin it!
