I have a lot of tungsten weights that have corrosion on them, anyone know how to
clean them up. Of course it is only the unpainted ones.

I know that this won't help now but, I try and find packets of silica gel in jerkey, new shoe boxes, ect... and place several packages in my cranks, hooks, weights, anything that could possibly have some water still on it. It really works well.

You might try one of those parts blasters.

Could probably use a rock tumbler with some sort of glass bead media. I didn't know that Tungsten corroded.

Just like cleaning a battery post. Use baking soda in a thick solution on a damp cloth. It is a one at a time deal; but it comes off quickly.

Once you get them cleaned, you can get them real hot with a torch and then drop in cold water. Will turn a Black Nickel Color and will not come off.

Fish spit works pretty good. I put mine in my ultrasonic cleaner that I clean my brass with before I reload. Distilled water and case cleaner solution. Works pretty good.

Send them to me but when I return them, they'll look like lead.
