    Hey, welcome!

    Something like WD-40. I don't know if you have that over there, but it's basically a light, penetrating oil. Dont' get it on or in the wood though.

    Sometimes a good metal polish will work: Brasso, Silvero, Flitz. Or you can use an old toothbrush and a dab of toothpaste to get off the reall bad rust.

    Hope this helps.
  3. Hello there...thanx for the idea of toothbrush!
