I think we all own a few tools that have so much rust on them we can’t even use them. I have a load of tools from my granddad that are so rusty, sandpaper, oil and elbow grease didn’t shift any of it.
I want to restore the tools back to their glory days and actually start using them because in my own opinion tools were made way better back in the day.
The tutorial I am sharing with you today shows you how to remove rust from your tools using electrolysis, the chemistry of which I will leave to the article to explain. Essentially, you create a (safe) current that travels through the solution and flakes off the rust – genius!
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
