Im looking for a metal stripper. I remember someone in this thread refurbished an old bike and soaked it first in a drum with a powder mix that stripped it clean down to shiny metal. What Im stripping is aluminum that will be smelt and cast otherwise. Ive scoured a bit tonight and cant find the page Im looking for. Any help?

No i know al alloy doesnt rust. I was just looking for a quick way to just give a strip bath instead of having to scrub for hours. There parts from an old riding mower, pistons, connecting rods, and the engine block itself. I just havent had much luck with muratic acid baths which some people actually have work for them. Id just toss it in the crucible and smelt away but the extra junk left behind after the burn off could contaminate my aluminum and reduce my over all amount that I can get from the smelt.


Thank you though for the response. I cant leave without contributing something to the BMX topic considering I derailed it slightly.


My old ride. 0 degree front end on a Dragonfly Motion Makes Motion flatland frame. I recently started to take it apart to clean etc and got side tracked. Old graveyard chainwheel and I have some short biz house crank arms for the compact crankshaft. Years ago i put three hundred into the bike only to turn around and get to busy to ride. I will never part with it and I always tell myself Ill spin around on it in the drive way in the near future...who knows.
