Metal Working Tip

Ironhead Sportster Motorcycle Talk (1957-1985) - The Sportster and Buell Motorcycle Forum - xlforum.net
For those of you new to fabricating using mild steel. The easiest way to remove the firescale found on new metal is to soak it in a mixture of white vinegar and plain table salt...no real proportions, just "alot" of salt. I use a black PVC pipe, capped on one end and a threaded removable cap on the other, I have 2 of these tubes, one 4 foot and one 7 foot long. Soak a day or three and the scale that doesn't dissolve wipes off with a rag.....old blacksmith trick.
