Extractor help please
A few weeks ago I bought a powered extractor from a co-worker. It once belonged to his father-in-law and was last used 40 to 45 years ago. Since that time, it has sat in a barn covered in dust, dirt and sawdust. First question, cleaning. The internal rotating cage is made of expanded steel. Can I use an acid to remove rust, or wire brush? The outer drum is galvanized and will clean easy.
Question 2. Once cleaned and prepped, refinishing. Most beekeeping equipment suppliers carry an epoxy based clear coat for honey equipment refinishing. Should I use this, or can I use a polyurethane based automotive clear coat? Any help anyone can give me will be most appreciated.
