For jewelry I use "Instant Tarnish Remover" from JoAnn Fabrics. The stuff is just about unbelievable.

Of course, if you're not in the USA, getting it MIGHT be a problem.

I hope you've tried TRL's anodized aluminum rings since you've found the site. All the colors, and anodizing will usually last longer than the thin wash "plating" found on rings at places l ...

I know that even with rust-killer spray coatings, no one brazes in patch panels for car body repair. Dissimilar metals (the brazing rod & the steel fender & patch) corrode even though sealed ...

I read that one of the squire's duties was to periodically put the chain maille armor into a barrel with oiled sand & roll it around for a while to polish the rust off.

The Ring Lord has a pattern (and a kit) for a scale maille vest. They might have a pattern for regular chain maille as well.

Lorenzo here has pics of a chain vest he did with Trinitymaille that's ...
