Re: Stainless Rust Prevention
If the stainless is so far gone it needs mechanical polishing I would remove it and have it electropolished. Otherwise just a good hand polishing to make it shine. Trying to do it mechanically is certainly possible, but trying to polish tubing with a buffer, or dremel will be incredibly difficult to get an even polish on. It can be done, but takes a lot of work, and typically requires removing the part anyway.
