It Works!
I had previously reviewed this product, but have since had a particular application for it upon which I wanted to try it. This was some woodshop equipment that had been allowed to rust. Mostly it was the metal surfaces we find on table saws, planers and joiners. Using a throw-away brush, I applied a thick layer and then covered it with plastic wrap as recommended. The trick I found that works the best and gets your money's worth is to wait for the necessary time and not try to rush it. The key to knowing the right time is to watch until the product turns completely black. This may take hours or even overnight. Take the item outside and simply rinse off with a water hose. Dry the surface, and if it needs more treatment, do the same again. Sometimes the rust can penetrate into cracks in the surface or the surface may have deep staining from other than rust. This is normal when dealing with older and used surfaces. Don't expect perfection. Instead try sanding the surface with some light sand paper, emery cloth or a polisher of some sort; your choice. Woodshop metal surfaces can be kept nice with an application of Johnson's Paste Wax. When you have the time, this product works in saving you a lot of elbow grease.

      Not worth the price.
      Very disappointed with the Metal Rescue gel product. I bought this assuming it would be as good as Evaporust liquid. I was very wrong. I followed directions and wrapped the gel in plastic and taped both ends to prevent drying out. The product was ineffective at removing rust, even after applying several times. I didn't know Evaporust made a gel, I'll try that. Their liquid works great. Rick

        I applied this to an old 1950’s rusted sign that I could barely read. The results were fantastic. It’s worth every Penny I paid for it.

        It didn't do a very good job and made quite a mess. I ended up returning it for a refund.
