I came home from work last night to find my dining room had turned into a tropical rain forest while I was at work. A heating pipe broke in the floor above, destroying my ceiling completely and flooding my dining room area. Most of the ceiling sheetrock was ("melted") on the floor, table and everything. Major amount of water was coming down like sheets of rain.
Lacking a workshop, I do my building on my dining room table. LUCKILY, my IV kit project was in another room for the day but tools were left out, as well as some wood samples in the midst of dye/finish experiments. Anything made of steel was covered with rust after less than one day.
The first two obvious "casualties" are a Parrot vice and the beautifully-restored #6 plane I bought just recently.
What is the best way to clean up these tools for "overnight" surface rust, given that it's not just simple flat surfaces ?
Anything that cannot be repaired easily will be part of an insurance claim
I guess I know what I'm doing this weekend...
