what would you do?
I am having an issue with rust. I am trying to restore an old iron wagon wheel. It does however, have a lot of rust so I was looking at rust removal products and I found a few. Has anyone ever heard of I also found evap rust but the rust911 sounded like a better choice? Has anyone ever used these products and do you think they would be safe to use?

I haven't heard of that product, nor used it. Sounds to me like its worth a try though. I've always used a power grinder to remove all rust, and I can say that its not a fun job. The thing to remember is that rust is like cancer. If you don't get it all off the substrate, it will continue to grow under the coating.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help with your specific product question sheliap. Oh, and welcome to the forum!
