Calling all parts recyclers, pick-and-pull repurposers, and lovers of all things metal! Back in MAKE Volume 17, John Todd shared a veritable catalog of ways to remove various substances, from rust to paint to petrified grease, from metal. John breaks down mechanical methods, chemical methods, and the electrolytic method, complete with a how-to for building your own electrolytic conversion tank at home. Check out the full article on Make: Projects. Dig out some old machine parts, and get your shine on!

NOTE: Not all the methods John chronicles have pictures associated with them on Make: Projects, but since the site is a wiki, you can help! If you employ any of the methods, take pics, and add them to the project. The community will thank you!

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
