I'm cleaning large old bolts.

Reckon I'm cheap - or thrifty?

What's best way to save for maybe years to keep from rusting again? Store in container of engine oil, diesel fuel????

Thanks.

If I really want to keep a bolt good over a long time I drop them in a bucket of waste oil. But I have a lot of waste oil since I try to keep a lot of what I drain for little things like oh no I have to have some oil for this or that including the oiling of the chains on the machines

Wire brush them, hit them with some primer.

I just put them in a bucket and they seem to keep pretty well. If they are heavily rusted I don't save them.

Nothing at all wrong with keeping old "specialty" ,HARD TO FIND bolts,as long as they are in GOOD SHAPE.

If I am going to use them some time soon,I wire brush them/or blast cabinate and hit them with some acid etch primer.(If a restoration on something,have them replated.)

If no plans for them any time soon,I usually leave them all "greasy" as they were and keep them in a storage tray untill needed.

Really good sorted bolts get LPS corrosion inhibitor spray. Others just get kept dry. Jim
