Tarnished lighting stands.


Recommended Posts

I have a number of powerdrive stands of various ages, Originally Zinc finished some of the older ones are starting to show a bit of surface rust. Any suggestions on effective ways of cleaning / treating to stop further deterioration on these or similar stands?

I inherited a similar set a couple of years back. I stripped them down to parts and after a good scrub with soapy water and a scouring pad, I used Brasso! Replaced some of the wing bolts, bolts and nuts. Pretty good condition now and they haven’t gone rusty again!

Anyway - contributing something useful to this discussion - I've found that "pink stuff" paste cleaner - a slightly abrasive cleaner - and a bit of elbow grease works well. I got a tub of it in our local pound shop. After that, a wipe down with an oily rag to stop further deterioration. I guess some sort of car polish might be just as effective to protect.
