I've never tried electrolysis at home. Going to go look through my metal pile I know I have some rebar.

First up old Ford wrench, next up old license plate.

I don't see anything wrong with that wrench, either.

We'll see it cost me $3.00 at a junk shop. It's bubbling away, hopefully it still looks like a wrench in a few hours.

Oiled and ready for the next 100 years.

Put license plate in bath at 2.0 amps for the night. We'll see what happens it's a lot of surface area.

1st 24 hours at 2 amps, cleaning up well. The resistance is going up, I'm up to 18 volts at 2 amps and that is what I limited the power supply to.

Gives you an idea of extent of rust, holes through the plate.

They look worse off now than before you put them in.

I agree on the oil and 100 years wrench comment. Old tools outlast old fools, and new tools are for new school fools. I will never buy another Chinese or Indian made tool for the remaining time I have on this Earth.
