Removing oxide

Recommended Posts

When you say wire brushing do you mean by hand ? I would try a wire wheel on either a bench grinder or angle grinder if you have not done so already...?? I haven't done much with stainless but found wire wheel makes a huge difference when hand held brush has basically no effect.
Just a suggestion.
Certain stainless (I don't know what grade, but have seen sheet stainless turn orange with rust after being exposed to muriatic acid vapours) steel will corrode to a surprising degree with certain acids if not neutralized.

Do you have any pictures ? Sounds interesting to take a look.
