Removing rust from cast iron?

7 posts in this topic

I have a nice wood stove that was unfortunately left out in the elements for the past year (not by me). This was sitting in an ice house that the roof had been removed since it was falling apart. It is now covered with rust...some places worse than others.

It is usable how it is now....but looks like crap. Anything I can do to refinish it?

Would it work to just oil it? When it gets heated the oil would work similar to conditioning a fry pan, wouldn't it? Just open windows the first time you fire it up.

Well, I found some frying pans that were in the same shape. I used some fine steel wool to get the rust off and then oiled them up. My roommate's inebriated friends re-broke them in one morning by frying up a big batch of bacon, so I'm sure their first couple pieces tasted like rust. Worked out great for me...They broke it in and everything from there on tasted just fine! smile.gif

Try the steel wool and oil thing.

If you are going to use the frying pans for frying food, don;t spray on stove black. If for declorating or hanging on the wall, maybe, always a chance someone will use them for cooking. wink.gif The high heat black will stay on your stove.

Thanks guys. I am going to try the wire brush on a drill and then look into the stove black if the wire brush cleans it up enough.

      Made it out to North Center today by sunken island. Not very good, one perch. Marking them just not committing. Lots of water on ice, but ice is fine. 17 inches.    As far as north access, off Nelson road on east side there is an access. Put money in the box and don't be a Richard, I believe it is owned by a farmer and let's people use

      Lake St Clair is a blast. If you hit vermilion at the right time it will be right up there with that. No reason you can't have a 100 fish day with a good chance at many big fish. Going by my phone pictures I had a great day on June 17 a few years back ha. Theres no shortage of rocky shorelines and docks. I'm a fan of tubes myself but I know guys love their senkos.    I'm sure you'll get some more specific responses. Wish I had more time to chase them myself
