you can buy cleaning vinegar that got a higher accidity
id test out of sight to see if whatever you go with doesnt affect the outside finish...

ok a few things for that lamp is cool btw.
50/50 acetone and transmission fluid to put
on that nut. it will soak into threads and nut.
for the rusty bottom of the base. get some naval jelly.
you brush on wait and rinse off. works pretty well.
use a 6 point socket on that nut. when you take it off.
All great recommendation, my friend, Lrus! :tup:

Thank you for your suggestions, brother!

A 50/50 acetone and transmission fluid sounds interesting and viable!

As for the rust, I'm considering trying Evapo-Rust®. Primarily for the minor surface corrosion on the other parts of the lamp not including the bottom of the base.

I do have experience with Naval Jelly, though. It's good stuff!

Thank you, Lrus! :tup:

I have cleaning vinegar. I've been using it on the stainless steel range hood.

I used it on my set of Machinist Squares and it permanently altered the finish, and not in a good way... :frown:

I discovered Evapo-Rust® while perusing woodworking tool restoration YouTube videos.

I was thoroughly impressed with the Evapo-Rust® results...it also does not negatively affect the original finish.

Thank you, Ben! :tup:
