Default Jack

I found this jack and would like to clean it more but don't want to break it. So far I've soaked it in water and was able to pick off a little rust.

I believe it would, keep your eye on it though. Wait to see what others say before trying it.

I don't have electroysis set up. Most things have cleaned up pretty well by hand.

Check out some YouTube videos. It's very easy to set one up. I've got one made from a 5 gallon bucket and I've got one for small stuff (like your jack) made from a plastic peanut butter jar.
