    CLR works pretty good on light surface rust.. Just dilute partially and use some spray lube to displace the moisture after rinsing all of the CLR off. Keep it well oiled after that and you shouldn't get rust back on it.

    I thought about The Works shower cleaner and looked at CLR when I went to get the Vinegar. Was thinking might be to strong. Found out about Vinegar on the web, soaked in a old cooking pot . Worked really good removing light rust.Thought about soaking in lacquer thinner then oil bath.Thanks for input. I always like hearing about new ways to solve problems.

    Rust does not create more rust. You needn't be overly concerned about removing it all. Oil laden rust should protect the base metal quite well.

    Using a phosphoric acid mixture like naval jelly or Ospho will convert the rusted steel into a compact, protective iron phosphate salt. As long as the parts don't mate or slide, that is the best solution.

    Is the rust in question in the engraving? If it is, once clean, you can apply a color or clear paint (nail polish) into the grooves to protect it.

    Ah... but would that affect the metal in any way when considering you want a clean, bare surface for something like DuraCoat, or a light park before DuraCoating... ?

    Duracoat is a surface coating, similar to paint. If it will adhere to their own zinc phosphate pretreatment, it should work well over the phosphated steel from naval jelly. But the corrosion resistance from phosphating is not needed with an impermeable coating. If you are going to coat the surface, the most important factor is to remove the rust and all traces of lubricants and contaminants. Do not use a primer, like Ospho, as it will only impair the adhesion of a coatings like Duracoat.

    Also, it sounds like the Duracoat is probably a urethane film, so be careful with ventilation. They do not have MSDS or other safety data online, so I'd request these before ordering.
    Even short duration skin or respiratory exposure to isocyanates in unreacted urethane coatings can cause permanent sensitivity to things like polyurethane foam seating in certain individuals.

    I have never used the product, but have occupational safety experience with similar chemicals.
