did my homework on rust.it seems that electrolosis will work to stop rust and convert it back to iron,simply take a plastic bucket put the rusty piece in and fill the bucket with one part lye to four parts warm water.THIS IS IMPORTANT- using abattery charger, connect the negative clip to the piece and lower into the solution, then take a rust free large bolt-clip it to the positive terminal and lower it down into the solution but not the clip or it will be eaten away,this really works I took some hopelessly rusted pliers and they came out great in about 20 mins.
