no but I wanted one after I saw the video ... until I saw the price ..
A machine that can do 1 square foot in 5 minutes  .... $ 91, 000.00
for now I'll stick with a cup brush and phosphoric acid. :cry:

but one that can do  1 square foot in about 15 seconds ... about like the video ... is only $ 255,000.00 !!!  ... what a deal !

Electrolysis removal is also a good option without using acids

Good video Occam. Yes electrolysis seems to be a great option for home use when the item to be treated is small enough to fit in a prepared container for that purpose..
On larger items such as an old car hood for example, electrolysis might not be so easily done for the home guy.. The laser rust remover as seen in the orginal video would be nice for larger items was my thinking. But after watching a short clip explaining its use, the video maker warned of the possibility of warpage of thinner metal because of high heat from the laser.  That is also a problem associated with dry sandblasting.. (is my understanding)

There use to be a TV Show featuring Rick Dale, owner of Ricks Restorations in Las Vegas, Nevada. I enjoyed watching the show. This fellow and his team would restore just about 'anything' and they did a great job.
