This vinegar bath started out with clear and clean fresh distilled vinegar.
3 days of soaking: 5 hatchets, 1 single bit and 2 double bits
i ended up with this.
pulling out a double bit from the "rust lava"
amongst the lot was this plumb carpenter hatchet.
this is exactly what i want to see after the tool is removed and rinsed off.
|exactly what a hatchet should look like after removing from a vinegar bath.|
i want to see the strong dark tempering in the front and hammer poll and all the rust to be removed.
this striker will make an excellent tool for someone!
