Help with restoring old tools

I have a couple of old Rigid Pipe wrenches that were my Dad's and they are really rusty. After I get the rust off of them, what can I use to protect them?

I was thinking of painting the handles with rust oleum, but not sure what to use on the jaws. Anyone ever do anything like this and could recommend something to preserve the jaws?

Id start with liquid wrench soaking. That should give you an idea if you need to use a steel brush on them or not. CLR after that should remove any rust film after that. Not a big fan of wd40 on metal. Seems to attract moisture. Like RonM said, 3 in1 oil better choice.

Grease and use will keep them working.

Every day you see it on the news. Another felons life needlessly spared by inaccurate fire.

Re: Help with restoring old tools

Thanks guys. I have them soaking in PB Blaster. I did not want to use WD-40 and was unsure what to use. I will try some rem oil and see how that goes.

Re: Help with restoring old tools

I let rusted tools and fishing reels soak in Coke then brush with a stiff bristle brush. Cleans rest and corrosion well, then I wipe with gun oil or reel lube.
The longer the tool will not be used the heavier coat I apply.
