    Default Options for restoring mill vise?

    So I just bought a used machine vise that was has very minor surface corrosion on the jaws and bed, what are my options to get it the rust removed?

    The only proper way I can think of is to surface grind it.

    How about trying a little Scotch Brite first?

    For minor corrosion my go to method is scotchbrite and wd-40. One of the only things wd-40 is good for in my opinion.

    As long as you clean off all the wd40 residue before it causes more rust
