Historic Church Bell Restored
In June 2002 the Tonset Historic Church was struck by lightning. The bell tower and narthex were destroyed by fire. The church bell fell 35 feet onto the floor of the narthex. When it was decided to rebuild the church, the bell was removed from the burned structure. I used GEMPLER'S Rust Converter on the badly rusted bell and had very good results. The bell was replaced in the newly rebuilt steeple and bell tower, and is expected to remain rust free for many years.

RV Wheels Still Look Like New
We bought a 1993 RV to spend a few weekends camping with our grandchildren. The camper was a 27' Yukon which had a few dents due to a hurricane. The bumpers and wheel wells were pretty rusty, so I purchased your GEMPLER'S Rust Converter and applied it to the rusty front tongue and rear bumper as well as the wheels. Because I only had enough paint for the tongue and bumpers, the wheels were not painted at the same time. One year later, the painted areas still have not shown rust. Other paints I've used would rust through within a year. That was not the thing that pleased me most! After a year, the wheels have not rusted either, and they have been exposed to the wettest year I can remember. I finally painted them this spring. I'm really sold on GEMPLER'S Rust Converter and plan to use it again. It outperforms any other primer I've used.

Rust Converter Brings New Life to Winter Harbor Lighthouse Stairway
Ten years ago I purchased the Winter Harbor Lighthouse and Mark Island off the coast of Maine. The lighthouse had fallen into disrepair. The tower panes were all broken or long gone. Rainwater and sea spray had been driving in and running down the tower's iron spiral stairway for almost a decade. The stairway was caked with rust from top to bottom, yet retained most of its original (1856) structural integrity. I was advised to sandblast at a cost of thousands of dollars. Too difficult to set up out there and too costly for me, I concluded. Then someone told me about GEMPLER'S Rust Converter. Sounded too good to be true, until I spent $125 and tried it! I still can't believe it today, ten years later. I hit the iron rust with a wire brush and hammer, swept up the dust and flakes, then slapped on the Rust Converter. Easy, fast, unbelievably economical, and what a finish! The staircase looked new! Recently I bought some more Rust Converter. I'm going to hit the staircase again. It only needs
touch-up this time. People who visit the island cannot believe it when I tell them this story. "I've never heard of such a thing. Actually converted the rust back to metal?" I just nod my head, smile, and say "Yup, I didn't believe it either!"
Thank you, GEMPLER'S.

"The best thing since sliced bread..."
I have to say that GEMPLER'S Rust Converter is the best thing since sliced bread! I own a second home in Central Alabama complete with metal window casements. Because of the very high humidity in the summer, the windows sweat, causing water to pool on the window sill. Naturally this causes rust to accumulate. For 12 years I sanded and primed and painted, only to have to repeat the process the following year. I had begun to believe that the only solution was to replace all of the metal windows. Then about five years ago I found your Rust Converter. End of problem! I sanded off the loose rust, applied two coats of Rust Converter and then repainted. I couldn’t believe that it was so easy to use and it looked like an entirely new surface. It was such a simple solution for such a frustrating problem. Even though those old windows still sweat, I haven’t seen the first sign of rust. This was a miracle product for me and it was certainly a lot less expensive than replacing all those old windows.

"Ready for the tool box instead of the garbage bin..."
I'm a city gal who married a farmer. Since I'm not always allowed to play with the big equipment, my farmer and assistants went off to the fields with a backwards glance at me as I stood outside next to the rusty old fuel tank out in front of the barn. I did some sanding (mostly minimal) and painted the tank with GEMPLER'S Rust Converter. Because it needs a full day to dry, I of course did not paint over it by the end of the day. Upon returning, one of my husband's helpers returned with a little bit of a sneer and said it didn't look like it had changed much. I told him to FEEL the tank! He was amazed! The gritty feel of rust was totally gone, and instead a smooth surface met his fingertips. By the way, while I was painting the surface of the tank, any old rusty iron items got thrown into the bottom of my paint pan. There were old wrenches, a pin for the hay wagon, and some antique tools. When I finished with the tank, I brushed them off to get the excess off, let them dry, and then took a good
look at what I had. There were some real gems that were now ready for the tool box instead of the garbage bin.
