[Vwdiesel] cleaning crusty parts

I have a large collection of volksbolts and small parts from part-outs that
are dusty, rusty, crusty, and just plain filthy.

I'm thinking some kind of little ball mill or abrasive tumbler might be a
good thing for renovating some of this, saving hours at the wire brush
wheel. (don't have a sandblaster, and any way , a barrel mill could work
away while I'm doing something else)

To reduce "re-inventing", has anyone done this, and what tips on size and
type of drum, what kind of abrasives, etc, might work.

Hagar, are you listening?

What about Naval Jelly? (fermented belly button lint?)

All suggestions welcome
