It's cheap. Its can be delivered to your door by online sellers in powder form which lasts foreverish in smallish tubs that are easily stored. It doesn't take up space or stink like vinegar. You can up the dose a little. A little drop of fairy is good for breaking surface tension btw.
Flash rusting is a risk but when washing of the citric I dose it in bicarbonate then oven /torch dry and doing that I have never had an issue. Some will say its voodoo but it works for me.
If you decide to use electrolysis remember not to use stainless steel as a sacrificial piece.
Never used Evaporust personally.
Good luck and enjoy!

For the drill bed I'd use a razor in a scraper. Green pads. Check out Wallace's world class renovations of wadkin machinery for a masterclass. He has plenty of threads detailing his methods if you search using the advanced search filter on here.
That's a good price for an online shop.Phil Pascoe":3rd4d3dm said:I get mine where I get quite a few foodstuffs -
