Right. Those silica gel cannisters mentioned in the article are the right idea, just too expensive. I save all of those little bags of silica gel that are used in packaging assorted hardware and such. Put them in an oven at 300 degrees for a bit and then put them in a plastic container with some holes (no holes on the bottom). Same idea as store bought, but essentially free.

You can buy silica gel cat litter. It's about $12 CAD for 8 lbs.
Even that is kind of expensive for the cat, so I'm thinking about trying to find an industrial source.

Thought I'd made it clear, but guess it went right over your head. I'll quote myself: "It's amazine sometimes, the stuff I run across while looking for something else."
The amazing part is I found the piece on rust while doing a google search for something entirely unrelated to to rust, or even metal. So, I was surprised when I came across it. A link or two to articles about fighting rust is alwys handy. And no mantter how many times it's been beaten to death here, it'll come up again in a day or two anyway, because people seldom do any research before they ask for someone else to solve theyr problem for them. Clear now?

Indeed yes, "amazing". On occassion I try to introduce a but of culture here, to make some of you think a bit, or to just puzzle some of you, as the case may be; "amazine" is an archaic usage of the word "amazing". You can see that culture is pretty much wasted here. Doh. PC.

A wad of cloth stuffed into a small lemonade bottle with some linseed oil in it will make a good rub to go straight onto any patches of rust that you notice when using a toy once in a while. The oil seeps ast the rust and incorporates it into a resin bond. And it easily wipes off machine surfaces that you want free.

Perfectly clear. You're deconstructing the idea of a FAQ. Instead of accumulating information in a central repository you're attempting to post the trivia on a more frequent basis in individual posts. You're doing a public service by catering to the inefficient.
