Question How do you make a electrolysis bath?

I wanna know how to make a homemade electrolysis bath I looked all over the web and couldnt find much. I just want to know how to make one because I have some parts I would like to clean like cylinder head and block.

Re: How do you make a electrolysis bath?

I've done it before:



Basically you need the following:
Sodium Carbonate (pool pH increaser)
A 12v DC battery source (a battery charger works good)
Some metal that's not copper that can get rusty

In a solution of water and sodium carbonate (one tablespoon of washing soda per gallon of water) place a rusty metal and non rusty metal in the bath. Connect the metal to get rusty to the positive battery cable and the metal to get un-rusted to the negative cable. And presto, it will unrust overnight, maybe faster.

Just note that hydrogen and oxygen are byproducts of this operation. So do it outside.

Re: How do you make a electrolysis bath?

I just did this on an old cracked head I had laying around and after just 2 hours of it going it looks really good and every thing on it just wipes off. I love this Im going to do this with every part it works so well!
