    what would be the best way to remove surface rust on machined parts?

    tryed some penetrating oil added some elbow grease and scotchbrite pads, looks ok, but need to get more off.

    was thinking naval jelly? or soaking in some kind of oil.

    what do you use?

    If I'm planning on painting them, I use the brush-on rust treatment that bonds with the rust and turns it into usable primer.

    Turpentine is a good surface rust remover. Srub it on with some steel wool. Let it sit for a bit, and scrub some more.

    Phosphoric acid in one of its many forms (liquid.. sometimes called "Ospho", and the gel form known as naval jelly) helps neutralize and kill rust. Just be sure to rinse and whipe it off thoroughly.

    If the surface is already pitted, you wont be able to get that 'machined surface' back without removing more steel (re-machining it).
