    cool, need a couple before and after shots of both the lock and the hoe. big difference. looks like a safer method versus the stainless sacrifice metal.

    Nice video. I've been zapped a couple times when I thought the charger was unplugged.It was only a small tingle. It hasn't killed me...yet. I would not drill a hole and put a screw in. I've seen other people suggest this. If a relic has a little rust on it, all I do is wiggle the battery clip to it. This makes a good contact. If there is a lot of rust, I will knock it off with a small hammer and scrape it with the end of a file to get a clean contact. Electrolysis is fun.

    I used a tiny bit, I dont want to stick my battery charged connectors in the solution as it will eat them up after awhile.

    It won't eat the negative in the solution. I have the negative in the water all the time attached to the relic. Keep the positive out of the water as it will corrode away to nothing.
