Getting Rust Off an Early LS Starrett Machinist Center Gage with Simichrome

April 10, 2016 · Filed Under Simichrome · Comment 

An often asked question is Simichrome capable of taking rust off my ………….. In today’s post we have taken an early LSS Co # 391 center gage when they were made in Athol Mass for our demonstration.  As you can see it was corroded and had some surface rust from being left uncared for in an old tool chest.  But take heart, it can be revived ! Just a little dab of polish, about the size of a pencil eraser, right out of the tube, did a remarkable job in less than 3 or 4 minutes for both sides.  We applied it with a small piece of 0000 steel wool with light pressure and followed with a good wipe down using a micro fiber cloth. Take a look at the before and after pictures below for the results .  If you would like to buy some Simichrome please click here to go to our recommended online seller.
