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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
