    muriatic acid (aka HCL) doesn't attack plastic or glass.

    a $0.50 plastic sprayer will work just fine.

    HCL should be diluted some, but doesn't have to be. it's kind of like Simple Green in that respect.

    *VERY* important... when diluting always pour the HCL INTO the water (distilled if your water has a high pH), not the other way around.

      I use the plastic coffee cans for my small stuff, 5 gal buckets for the bigger parts and plastic pipe with a cap glued on one end for my gun barrels...Bob

          How big are the parts you are going to do?

            I tried using muratic acid twice since I saw that post. It has worked great. It saves a ton of grinding, because I use mostly steel from a scrap yard.

            I have a 24" x 47" piece that I want to use to build my welding table with. Any suggestions on what to use to for a piece that big?

              saw horses, a bucket, a block brush (long handled plastic bristles), chem gloves and a garden hose.

              take it outside (preferably on a dirt area), set on the saw hoses, put on chem gloves+ apron, pour some HCL on plate, scrub w/ block brush, hose off. repeat as neccessary.


              the only thing I hate about HCL is that it smells like puke (for obvious reasons).
