    The rust was so prolific, I removed the trigger assembly and slid

    It looked like it would clean up good. The bands cleaned better than I thought from the pics. JL

    That's the smart way to handle bands like that. If you work it too hard, even with bronze wool and mild solvent, you could end up with white shiny pitting. BiO did just enough to remove surface rust/scale and conserve.

    Even harder with that front band not being milled.

    Didn't know you could buy Kroil by the gal..

    Cleaned up pretty well... still needs a bit more.

    I am looking for suggestions on the Take down disc.
    Any suggestions how to get at it, w/o mucking up the wood.

    For me the wood is critical to preserve...

    Bob, I recommend this:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0018Q...2362323&sr=8-5

    It's brass and the angled point works for getting in close without touching the wood. You have to go slow and careful, though.

    That's a good tool recommendation and beats the steel version of the dental pick that most use. BiO, I cleaned up the stacked up rust on a disc today and it came out great. Just took off the scale, left the stain. I wiped Ballistol on it, let it sit for a couple days, then used a bronze gun cleaning brush, the bronze version of the military / M16 cleaning toothbrush with the short bristles on one end, long on the other. Went slow, wiped with a clean cloth and ballistol, more work, more wipe, came out great, no wood damage. Kroil will soak into and penetrate wood, turning it black. Ballistol is OK.
