Re: Using molasses for rust removal

Hi there,

Yes, molasses is great - slower than vinegar but removes all the rust it can reach. It doesn't seem to affect enamel-painted surfaces (not sure about acrylic)... a large wheelie bin can hold a lot of parts!

As it's needed in Australia, without glass may be the better option (safer and cheaper to post).

Re: Century Thermostat Housing

Hi there,

Before you re-cast them I aready have a number of new castings and a mould in which to cast more.
I can get a price for postage and re-casting will be around 40-50 AUD If more than 4 are needed...

Cheers,

Nigel
