Awhile back I was banging the Newsgroup with the idea that shellac was
the be all and end all of rust preventers on cast iron equipment.
Over the last two weeks I have had the opportunity to work with
equipment that I shellacked last December.
It didn't work.
I've got major rust on equipment that was treated with shellac.
I was hoping for the killer app - I wound up with something that
might, and I mean MIGHT increase the time needed between treatments
with more traditional barrier coats.
I'm sorry if I lead anyone else down the wrong path.
