What's your favorite way to store spare mantles?

Hello everyone.

I keep the bulk of them in several Harbor Freight ammo boxes. Some concern has been raised in the past about decay isotopes from thorium. A few packs here and there is no concern to me though

Paint Removal on a 220C

I wouldn't wire wheel the paint off the tank. Too abrasive. It'll be a lot of polishing to get the scratches out unless you are going to paint it again. Just use a strong paint stripper or the stuff shone & 0000 steel wool.

That green patina is corroded brass showing through where the nickel is gone. CLR or vinegar & 0000 steel wool will work. Try to let the chemicals do the work more than the steel wool.

If the crack bothers you, a little muffler mender type stuff could be smeared in there and the excess steel wooled off. I wouldn't think that it would affect performance though.
