    I believe I have some sort of hitch, a horseshoe, and maybe a cap that would cover a nut like from a wagon.

    Went a little closer to the home site. About 10 ft to the left of the upper left hand corner of the foundation (see pic).
    Got the usual iron tone. Pinpointer went crazy over a good size area. I know this isn't anything special but I sure had fun digging it up! I think it's part of a fireplace. I dug up a lot of bricks and ashes.

    I found this today at an old abandoned field, which I'm assuming was once a farm.

    That's really cool! Do you know how to clean it up? I'm still trying to figure that out. That would be a near display piece!

    I don't know how to clean it. I was told to rarely use any kind of cleaner or chemicals on any finds, mainly coins. What would you recommend?

    Ok here's some ways to clean / remove rust.

    1. Check out this forum to help you make your decision: Cleaning & Preservation

    2. Use electrolysis - this seems to me to be the fastest but I haven't tried it.

    Rust Removal By Electrolysis - VintageMachinery.org Knowledge Base (Wiki)

    3. I was recently told by someone to just soak in motor oil for 6 months. Seems the easiest but longest. Again I haven't tried it and I didn't see anything that had gone through that process.

    4. Use a product called Evapo-rust. My son-in-law used to work on motorcycles. He swears by this. Soak for a couple hours, rinse with denatured alcohol, coat with machine (motor oil). I have not done this but I am going to try it.

    5. Use vinegar and salt.

    Salt and Vinegar: Nature's Rust Remover - FineWoodworking

    I did this method. Learn from my mistakes and success.
    I put everything I had in the tub together - mistake. I had an old hub cap that turned pink and became more fragile than it was to begin with.
    Surprise- I have a copper lightening rod that was green and brown. Now it is shiny and new looking.

    Semi success- horseshoes and other iron pieces came out great. Had a couple mortise locks that were heavily corroded. A lot of the rust came off, but they needed to soak longer. My soaking time was six days only because I didn't have free time to deal with it. Your supposed to keep checking it.

    Huge failure - I didn't have machine oil or motor oil. Everything got flash rust!
    This was a lot of work and I don't have a place to work. I was using tubs in the backyard. So I am going to split things up. Some in the #3 & #4.

    I hope this helps!

    I'd run it through electrolysis. I simple little setup with a 5 gallon bucket and a battery charger doesn't cost much, and I'd bet those clippers would free up and move again

    I’ve heard you can soak it in Coca Cola for about 24 hours to get rust off
