    Hey Everybody,

    I recently joined the Masterclasses site and I’m addicted to the great video content. Love it. Just realized there’s a forum 🙂

    I’ve been interested in working with hand tools for about 2 years now, although I’ve done very few projects in that time. I had been slowly buying tools online and at flea markets to build up my collection. This past summer I discovered a large chest of tools for sale by a neighbor. It’s a complete set of tools from a woodworker of about 100 years ago. I’ve been slowly restoring a few things for use. Thought I would share a pic of my collection

    Take Care,
    Joe

    It amazes me how people come up fairy tales, I would ask them since vinegar is a consumable food product and that it rests in our bellies so how come it doesn’t eat up the lining of our stomachs.

    I know it’s safe to leave it soaked overnight and usually you would use wd40 or turpentine to wipe it down so I don’t believe it would weaken the metal but I will ask a friend of mine who is a metallurgist.

    @lowpolyjlo, saiko is right. I run all my metalurgy by my local knifemaker. He fully recommends vinegar as it is mild, but does remove rust. However it can etch metal if left soaking overlong(week or more),especially in laminate or damascus like steel.
