  • Removing Stainless Steel Heat Discoloration?

    I am working on a stainless steel model of the Brooklyn Bridge, but as I weld the cables to the base I am seeing heat discoloration. Is there a way to remove this discoloration without using abrasives?

        Pickling paste will do it. They only brand I can think of right now is DeRustit.
        (hope I spelled that correctly)
        Try a good LWS.

            summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

              Thanks

              Thanks for all the advice. My local distributor in Manhattan (McKinney) has the Avesta 302 Compound, but it's around 50 bucks. A bit pricey, but maybe a good investment.
