Trying Out Electrolytic Paint Removal

Recommended Posts

Reminder -- Hydrogen gas is released.  Poor ventilation + unclipping a "sparking" electrode = BOOM, which could be deafening.  Disconnect the charger first.

Good point. 

Which brings me back to my earlier question about the possibility of removing galvanization with electrolysis -- in particular, the safety factor: does the electrolytic process create zinc oxide fumes or the like, or does it just blast the zinc off the steel to settle to the bottom of the bucket?

I plugged the battery charger into a power strip and turn it off before I do anything with it, and turn it on after everything is ready.

 It's about the same danger level as charging a battery, as I understand it......same precautions apply......               Dave
