I, for one, simply cannot resist the urge to stop when I'm driving along and spot a tool laying neglected on the road. This weeks patient is a side cutter/nips that I spotted sitting in front of my pickup on the way back to work after lunch, rusted solid from being out in the elements for only goodness knows how long. On the up side, I could see the potential straight away, as the jaws didn't appear to have any nick/dents.So after a liberal dose of PBlaster I hit the exposed parts with the wire wheel, it's not pretty, but is now rust-free on the outside. After that, more PBlaster, a lot of persuasion using a few blocks of wood to slowly knock the jaws open a thou at a time until it's fully open where I can wire-wheel the bearing surface, PBlast it and then beat it shut again. Repeat above step a hundred times until it's opening smoothly by gravity alone, and closing just as well and off it goes to my toolbox with a squirt of WD-40 to keep it happy for the rest of it's time on this earth... So, who else is a sucker for rusty tools on the road?
