I sprayed some tools with wd-40 since they were rusted. After reading
some posts here, it appears that vinegar is pretty good with rusty tools.
Is it ok to put the tools that were sprayed with WD-40 into vinegar+salt
in a plastic container? Or am i going to get a harmful chemical reaction?

Tthere will be no problem with a reaction between the mixture and
WD-40 as far as a reaction. However, WD-40 does leave a light oily
residue. This residue might restrict the action of the salt-vinegar
mixture. You should remove as much of the the WD-40 from the rusted

tools. Hang made up toolbag over the side of slowly moving vessel
(2-4knots) at sea. About .5 of an hour frees up most 'seized'
tools and softens the corrosion on all.
Treat with fresh water and scale remover afterwards -
