DifferenceWhat a difference a few days hard graft makes.

Here, the picture shows the two phases of my rust busting process.

The first layer (top) is the original rusty surface.

The second layer shows the steel after chipping with the Hilti TE104

The last layers shows the steel after attention with a wire brush.

After a really good clean, with brushes, vacuum and rags, the steel is then good to paint with the Hemple primer.

    Are you getting some Metalbrite on there too? It's a good way of stabilising the bare steel so that it doesn't rust before you can get primer on - without it you'll be getting surface rust within hours. The nice thing is that it's a thin clear liquid that doesn't need to be carefully painted on - on a deck you could probably slop it around with a mop :-)
