Got a couple of brass fittings where the moving parts are corroded to
where they don't move anymore.
Is there some household substance that they could be soaked in to
dissolve the corrosion?
On the trigger snap that was really brass, it worked 100%: it's
On the other piece that I *thought* was brass, it removed the external
corrosion, but did not penetrate to the inner workings. Probably not a
brass/non-brass issue... just a matter of penetration. I'll let it
soak awhile longer and see what happens.
Bottom Line: the water/vinegar/salt solution works.
