An important safety concern has not been addressed in this thread, and that is how you mix the acid and the water.

ALWAYS add the acid slowly to the water.

If you add water to acid, it can "blow up" all over you and anything else laying around close.

I think I'm sort of in the middle here, I rarely use acid any more, and don't sandblast. I use play sand, made for sandblasting, and tumble any really rusty traps in my concrete mixer.

RKBA !!!
