    Hey, I apologize if this has been covered before, I know rust has been talked about, but I'm not sure if my issue has been discussed. Breaking down a polished Juliet frame and all the screws are rusted. Not a problem, I have a Wiha T6 so the screws came out easy peezy. How do I clean the threads on the frame, WD 40? There looks to be a lot of rust left down there on the ear stem and orbital threads. I have replacement screws ready to go, just want to clean the frame super well so I don't get any rust on/ruin the new screws!

    I'd use a mild solvent made for rust and a pipe cleaner. A small brass brush that would fit in there would be cool.

    WD-40 is garbage.

    I've got some naval jelly, is that too strong?
    I strip down and clean all my Juliets. This poor little lady has the worst rusted screws I've ever seen. If I didn't have such a great driver I would have stripped 3 out of 4 of the screws...

    A brush will probably do more for you than anything since it's not the frame that's rusted. Just gotta get the crap out of there.

    Yeah I think naval jelly could mar the finish.

    Yeah, definitely don't trust that stuff... I gave them a good hot water and soap bath. Went over everything with q-tips. Got most of the rust off I think... Still see some rust around the ear stem washers area that doesn't seem to want to come off.

    I put all my screws back in with a weaponshield grease,it helps in the installation of new washers, lubricates and protects the threads from salts.
