Hi folks, I was at a meeting the other night of artisans that are trying to put together a studio tour in our area next summer. Long story short, one artist told me about this product and she is going to let me try some. I will post the results when I have used it. (after the 20th of February)
Has any one here used it or is currently using it?
Here is a link to the product.

I took a look also, and the site begins "If you can soak the article ...", so it's clearly for small objects at present. All before and after pictures show great results, though any detail, such as time, is lacking.
Here are two reviews of this product:
One guy says it works, the other (the vreview inthe right column) says it removes a lot of the rust, but not all, which means that the piece would still need to be treated with something else. He also mentions two products for encapsulating the rust.

hi i have tried a water based rust remover that is marketed in the UK by hammerite, it comes in a little bottle that you tip into a bucket off water, and then soak the item in over nite.
It realy works it turns that rust balck and you can just wipe it of , or rinse it away with a hose.
im geussing its exactly the same stuff as the product in your link.

If you are talking about soaking, than try plain old white vinegar. The blacksmiths use this all the time. Takes maybe a day or 2 soak to get nasty blacksmithed pieces down to clean metal. Leaves a bit of etching effect on the metal. Also needs to be neutralized.
