These brass trimmings had heavy tarnish prior to a 2 day soak in Extreme Green parts cleaner.  ALL I did was brush them off with a soft bristle brush as I removed them from the parts cleaner. I then simply wiped and blew them off dry. Fact Jack.

Don't let alloys like die cast(pot metal) sit for over a day in the stuff or you'll have apart looking like swiss cheese. :D


Cast iron surface will oxidize fast if you don't wipe clean the Extreme Green from the surface. 


Extreme green really does its best magic on tarnished brass.  You can leave the brass in there for days by mistake and it will still be there as it was when you remember. :D

 I have a 100 cup coffee pot that I clean a lot of stuff in . a old crock pot will work also
you can use water and real lemon juice . aso have used the Arm n  Hammer washing soda in the pots and yes he pot metal go easy and keep a eye on it .
If you have something with stuck screws don't  jets etc this will usually loosen them.
 Don't put stater or armatures in this!!!

Don’t you have to add salt to the vinegar? For it to work
correctly ?

Show me the befores and I can tell you.  Vinegar is relatively dilute acetic acid.  Care to share what is in your miracle mix?

Roughly $40.00 up here.  I use it in a large heavy plastic animal feed tub with a garbage can lid for the cleaner.  The reason for the animal feed tub is depth and diameter. I can fit a 16" brass guard in there and then some for a soak.

 Russ,
the Green Cleaner reminds e of the old Brass Bright we used to clean  rifle cases,
Now we use a tumbler and medium and the shell casings come out looking like new. 
Are you happy with the way it turned out? now you have to polish it?

You could build a tumbler just like we use for the rifle cases only large enough to  clean the 16 inch blades and cages. the tumbler I have just vibrates so you could get another of those animal   container and rig a motor  and you'll have a giant tumbler.
You can use ground corncobs or dried walnut hulls to polish. might even try the shredded paper from a computer  shredder.

Wow!, Russ, that stuff is transformational.

I'm going to give that stuff a try on a Zero.  :thumbup
Hope I'm not setting my hopes too high?

Charlie, if Russ has changed GE parts
into A-B parts, I'd like to give it a try!

You have to be able to walk on water to be able to change parts like Russ dose.

I put another minty BMY guard and blade in the Extreme green for only a 12 hour soak. Unfortunately the results this time were not as good. The guard broke and everything turned to Ecky.   :X
