I decided to try it out recently and can confirm it works very well. I'm guessing there is a home brew concoction that is the exact same formula? If so does anyone know the secret recipe?

I was unimpressed, but the piece I was working on might have been too far gone.

Be careful using it on black components. It stripped the black coloring off of the steel cages on a pair of Miche Competition pedals.

Any comments on Evaporust's "gel" product?

It gets mixed reviews on-line, but it sounds like it might be convenient for removing rust from frames.

I've used it for some hard to reach spots on components and a frame and was happy with all of the results. Although the rust in these applications wasn't as bad as some of the ones I've used liquid for so mine is a difficult comparison.

Years on and I still get a smile using Evaporust on bikes.

Can confirm that it didn't completely take out the really bad rust. However, it made those bad spots super easy to flake off with something course. I used a combination of brass brush and sharp knife blade. It was so much better than any method I've ever used before.

I had the best results with some cast iron/steel tools. Anything with a plating/coating comes out almost looking worse, as it cleans out all the pits and just leaves holes. Totally worth it for the giant VAR cotter pin press it saved, the thing was seized up and looked like it had been left outside.
