I was at Lowe's and found WD-40 Specialist 1-Gallon Specialist Rust Soak on clearance for $11.40. It's $19.36 at Amazon, so this seems reasonably slick if you need it. I have a bunch of tools I've stored in my humid Florida garage that could use it, so it worked out well for me. I've never used it, but have heard good things about it, and it's reusable.

It's as low as $5.49 and $5.71 at two different stores near me. I may have to pick up two at that price.

I have had good experiences with the WD-40 Specialist Rust Release in the spray can. It works well as a preventative and remover. The only thing I've found better at rust prevention/release/lubrication is the Royal Purple Maxfilm Spray Lube.

It's expensive, but for certain applications its great. After you spray it on, it evaporates, but leaves the coating/barrier with no residue/oil feeling.

Rust specialist? Is this the same as the regular WD-40?

This stuff is legit. My mom gave me a rusty old hand plane for my bday a week ago. I let it soak for 2 hours and there wasn't a spot of rust on it when I pulled it out. Easiest restore I think I've ever done. 1931 Stanley #5 BTW.

I would say regular wd-40 is more for spot removal where as this is more for soaking as the name states. Depends on your project, but if you're removing a bolt that's stuck then regular wd-40 is better. If you're restoring tools as stated in my comment above then soaking it is better.

No, this is meant for removing rust. The other stuff is a lubricate and water displacer

As a rust remover, for less than $6/gallon this is a good deal.

For years, we have used inexpensive household vinegar for removing rust from smaller items that can be soaked, as well as removing rust from inside metal gas tanks, etc. Sometimes, it requires two soaks as the 5% acidity neutralizes, but very safe and cheap to use.... often less than $2/gallon when on sale. The next option for severe rust would be Muriatic (diluted Hydrochloric) acid that is also reasonably cheap, but would absolutely use this WD-40 Specialist at less than $6/gallon over the Muriatic.... but not available in my area.

Some may enjoy the various rust removal tests by Project Farm [youtube.com] ... or this one using Vinegar [youtube.com].
