Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. Can anyone tell me where to buy that red carbon removing scouring stuff? Does a good job, but I can't find out where to get it.
  2. You mean scotchbrite? The QM?
  3. Bosch do a nice line in angle-grinders.
  4. use scoc and get px-36 through the system, will look for nsn in morning
  5. Hot water works a treat, easiest way I found. Make sure you dry the "item" and oil it nicely afterwards though.
  6. You aint askin about rust eater are you?.

  11. Sound advice, always wondered why Barry marketed coke in spray bottles
