Rust Removal Chemical
Has anyone used Xrust7, it sounds ideal for rust removal without causing damage, it does not damage aluminium which means you could submerge rusty old part complete, prior to stripping.
It is quite expensive at £50 plus VAT for 5 Ltrs although you do dilute it 1 part to 10 parts water.
Anyone used it?
The only method of rust removal I have ever used for serious rust is the 'electrolytic washing-soda' one.  It costs pennies (really) and no special equipment is needed, can utilise any charged car battery (preferably 12v), is completely safe (as long as used in a well ventilated area), and will not do any damage - in my experience.  The process can be left for hours or days depending upon the size of the job without any ill-effects.  It only needs topping up with water from time to time as the mixture evaporates over time. The mixture lasts and lasts.
Most proprietary rust removers are usually based on some pretty serious chemicals and I don't like 'em. 
 BTW I have no idea what it might do to aluminium - perhaps someone out there does?
