I broke a Barcalo mini-drought at the flea on Saturday. The large DOE is a pad stamped 1” x 15/16”. The smaller DOE is a Jeep and GMTK correct 731A and the starter/manifold wrench is 3/4” x 5/8”. The pictures are as found and after a evaporust bath.

Don,
I’ve always used toilet bowl cleaner. Nasty stuff and no fun to work with. You had told me about the evaporust a long time ago. I really need to try it. Those look great.

Picked up this BB Whitworth set of five DBE's recently at a very reasonable price :D

Individually these do surface quite frequently here in the UK, presumably they were supplied for Commonwealth Forces :?:

Interesting that the raised panel bar has an inverted ' V ' shape on both ends - Don has suggested that it could be to identify that they were Whitworth sizes :?: Seems to make perfect sense :?:

I have seen other BB Whitworth wrenches with forge markings ' 1 ' - ' 2 ' - ' 3 ' - ' 4 ' - ' 5 '. Perhaps it identifies the particular Whitworth size of each wrench :?: I have two Duro Chrome circle ' X ' Whitworth DBE's which are stamped ' 1 ' and ' 2 ' .

However the number ' 2 ' wrench in this set has an ' E ' forge marking instead :?: Perhaps denoting emergency :?:

These have been through my electrolysis tank, burnished with steel wool, then coated with a little BLO with a splash of WD 40.

BTW Phil, I used to use evaporust with some good results. But found that after a while the dreaded rust returned :x I think rinsing pieces with water was the issue. Strange but the rust does not seem to return after electrolysis :?

Len, I think Mudbox has had good results with electrolysis as well but Phil + electrolysis sounds dangerous to me! :lol:

I’ve been using a product called “Fluid Film” invented during WW2 on plain steel tools that I don’t want to rust. It’s lanolin based. I learned about it from Wingnutt. Some may not like the aroma but it doesn’t really bother me.
I found this unmarked but obviously Barcalo Double Grip wrench recently. The size markings are a little odd with a - on one size and a / on the other, something I’ve seen previously on some Fairmount wrenches.

I've been considering getting some 2" to 3" PVC, about 15" long to make an Evaporust "tank," as a means of minimizing solution used, while preventing evaporation loss of the solution...major problem when temps in the garage routinely run 88*F (31*C) or more.

Interesting to me that Len has issues with rust returning after Evaporust. My routine is to rinse the tool(s) in tap water, dry with a paper towel and immediately coat with WD-40 (because it's cheap and easily replaceable). So far, no issues with the cleaned tools re-rusting, except for the one big adjustable which I put through electrolysis. Surprising outcome, because I regularly use electrolysis to remove rust from cast iron skillets. The difference in this case is that the cast iron gets washed, dried and seasoned; the polymer formed by the seasoning prevents oxygen in the air reacting with the iron to form rust (iron oxide). The wrench wasn't seasoned, lol.

Phil, don't be scared of the e-tank...(just make sure your item (negative lead) and the sacrificial metal (positive) don't touch and there's nothing to worry about. However, the tank gives off hydrogen, so best not used in a confined space, unless you're trying to duplicate the Hindenburg :D ! When you hook it up, you'll see your item bubbling....that's the hydrogen.

Steve
