Restoration of Old Screws Part 2

using WD 40, left screw after right side before.

WD 40, fine grade steel wool, soft rag

Step one, spray screws with wd 40 while inside a small baggie, this evenly covers all screws with wd 40, then one by one hold screw in rag (but its easier to put screw into a drill, tighten grip and held drill in lap while polishing), polish with steel wool till shiny (push hard), then wipe off residue with soft rag. the before screw is dull and light in color, the after screw will be dark and shiny. also the oil will let screws go in easier especially if you had to purchase new screws that are a tight fit for the house. helps avoid post splitting.
