Does anyone have a method of removing rust from the trundles of the lantern pinions? Easy enough to remove rust from other areas, but what can get into the lantern pinion area ?:confused:

Evaporust will remove the rust but it won't fill in the rust pits. Best to just replace the trundles if there is much rust. One of those jobs some seem to want to avoid but it only takes a few minutes.

Or spin the pinion and use a wire brush.
