Fuzzy's Model "BZ" made the trip from Kansas City, Missouri to Todd's place on Friday, April 6, 2007:

15.Thumblatch Mechanism After Electrolysis. Removing the rust on this piece would have been extremely difficult using conventional methods. The electrolysis did a fantastic job, and was used on all but the largest pieces, which wouldn't fit in the tank. It removes all rust and old paint, but, unlike sandblasting, it does NOT remove the good metal!
