Removing rust, paint, scale and corrosion can be a pain. An easy way is to use a media blast whether it be sand, glass or any of the numerous different medias all with different properties for removing what you want to clean in different degrees of aggression.  You can use a blast cleaner outside but it can be a lot of clearing up so if you can enclose it it makes for an easier job and better reuse of the media and be more cost effective.  In this instructable I will show you how I made a large folding enclosure for my blast cleaning gun.
