    Default Power Base Converter Screw Repair.

    Finally found my missing screw that holds the converter down. It got rusted so used vinegar to remove rust but would like to get it shiny like new. Has anyone else had this happen and know how to fix? Thanks for any help anyone can give.

    Hi!
    Here's my tip:
    Very small glass or container with salt and lemon juice.
    Cover the screw with salt and then add the lemon juice. Stir it well and then let it rest for 8 hours. The screw should shine after this.

    Could run it through a m4 die.

    PB Blaster works wonders.

    If were me I would use a somewhat stiff steel wire brush, it can be found at home improvement stores just ask someone if you can't find them. PB Blaster also can be found at home improvement or auto parts stores but is meant to loosen and free up nuts and bolts of the sort also smells like diesel fuel. If you don't know what a tap is, I wouldn't think about using a M4 die, you would need the handle or something to hold the die. You got to know where to find table salt and lemon juice.

    Will this damage the plastic part of screw assembly? Thanks

    Good question.
    Didn't noticed that the head of the screw was made of plastic.
    You can try it on a similar screw to get to know the results.
