CAN YOU TELL ME THE BEST WAY TO REMOVE RUST
FROM MY IRON FENCE AND REPAINT? THE RUST IS IN MANY DIFFERENT PLACES OF THE FENCE. THE FENCE IS MORE OF A RAILING BY MY FRONT DOOR.

Good news Steven,there is a latex paint which chemically reacts with rust to bind the paint and the rust to the metal(no scraping or brushing).Check at your local paint store for such a product,if you have a problem,call Chromate Industrial Corp.,Bohemia,NY (516)-567-2200 and ask for Red Lion Rust Away #74157.You may be able to link up with one of their sales people if you need additional info.

Try renting a pressure washer. you need a powerfull one though , at least a 3000. $50 to $100 a day to rent. these are so powerfull that it can put a hole through a 3/4" peice of wood. Ask your local tool rental outlet if they believe it will work, I believe it will.
