What people are saying so far...
Thank you so much for the "Corrosion" ebook. As I failed Chemistry 'O' level at age 16, and haven't progressed since then, I wasn't expecting to understand it. Boy, was I in for a surprise!
The explanation of how a battery works, plus the simple list of metals and description of what to put where, has helped me to fix my galvanised wheelbarrow and ensure that it will never rust again. Also my classic Rover 80. Who would have believed that a bit of zinc flashing from a builder's yard could fix so many problems?
In addition, the chapter about dry rot made me realise that I had the beginnings of this in my garage roof supports but I was able to nip it in the bud before it became an expensive re-roofing exercise.
Thanks to your eBook, I have managed to de-rust a pair of brake discs, which my local garage told me would have to be replaced with new ones. I can't believe how easy it was. With the rust gone, they look almost new with hardly any wear or scoring. I suppose I should have realised there couldn't be much wrong, since the car was only two years old when I had to declare it "off-road" because of a back problem (thankfully, now much improved). The rust was merely a build-up due to the damp conditions and salt, as there was snow on the ground when it was put away.
It just shows how much money you can save with a little knowledge. I must have saved at least £60 plus labour and VAT. Brilliant for such a tiny outlay!
Knowledge is power, Frank. Just think how many people are spending hundreds of pounds because they begrudge £1.95 for a book.
I've looked through this book on corrosion and it is very interesting, a fair bit already known in outline but it's nice to see basic facts in one small volume. thanks again.
