    Have used Loctite Naval Jelly ( successfully for years to "de-rust" gardening and other tools. It's a highly effective rust dissolver (contains phosphoric acid) when the specific instructions are followed exactly. Note: the product is NOT a rust preventer, so once the tools are rust-free, they should be given a light coating of household oil (I use 3 in 1) and/or stored in a bucket of sand. Hope this helps?

    I once saw a post of a bucket of sand with old motor oil poured in and tools stored in the bucket handle side up.
