    I steel I have that I'm going to use for the machine has a bit of surface rust from sitting out for the last two years so wanted to try the viniger trick to clean it up. I didn't have any white viniger to hand but did have a bottle of brick cleaner acid so gave that a try and can't believe how well it works! One the design is complete I will cut all the bits to length the pop it all in a tank to soak :)

    After the vinegar bath you can spray WD40 at the inner side since you are going to paint the steel from outside, the rust I see is not that much that is going to cause trouble but it is always good to take precautions.

    i think your supposed to do a alkaline solution after the vinegar or acid to neutralise it and then yes i should probably get something to put on the inside. I will see if i can spray some red oxide in there and if not go for the machine oil option or similar.
