Our Favorite Rust Buster
The single most effective way to free up any rusted fastener is to first spray it with penetrating oil and then vibrate the heck out of it. And this hammer bit is just the tool to do that. Slap it into any air hammer and place the head against the rusted part. Pull the trigger and watch the rust leap off the part. Find the at industrial tool suppliers or amazon.com.
Spray Like a Pro
Old-style high-pressure spray guns and aerosol paint cans are great for applying paint to your project and everything else within a 20-ft. radius. But if you want to paint just your project and not deal with overspray, you need a high-volume low-pressure (HVLP) spray gun. This Kobalt No. 301339 unit from Lowe’s costs has all the adjustments you’ll need. You’ll also need a pressure regulator (Kobalt No. 357092 and a Kobalt No. 336415 air filter). Thin the paint according to the paint manufacturer’s recommendations and practice on cardboard to perfect the pattern, spray distance and application rate. Then go to town on your painting project.
