That is where I learned it from. Offshore platforms, salt/air/water gets on tools and to stop them from rusting we always threw them in a bucket of diesel for a week and let them soak.

Nothing brings back chrome, but salt will usually keep eating at tools. The diesel will stop the reaction.

Rounded off or corrided 12 point fasteners, hammer the head of the bolt (think of mushrooming it over) pound the 12 point socket on the bolt, viola easy removal fix. First choice would be to cut the fastener off, however sometimes cutting is not a viable option.

If you have a trouble some allen headed fastener and it's starting (or is) stripped out take a torx bit that is a little bit larger than the allen head and pound it into the boogered up hole. The corners of the torx will bite into the stripped out head allowing removal.

Cool to read that someone else has noticed that. :)

Back in the early 70's I found two different old 1/2" boxed-end wrenches that
had rusted slightly and were my main wrenches back when I was working on
air cooled VWs.

The other ends are 9/16" and aren't worth anything. :/
Always threatened to file 'em out to 15mm but just never did.

Filed out a loose a a goose shorty-boxed-end 11/16" to 18mm tho...

a vise grips on the shank of the screw driver and pushing down on the end
of the screw driver helps to keep them from stripping out.

And what worked miracles on old motorcycles for me was to use a 3/8" starter
punch and hammer and peen the Phillips heads down to where the screwdriver
didn't fit so good, then hammer the screwdriver in for a perfect fit -then!- try
turning it.

Beats the heck out of a stripped out Allen head screw which is what I saw
other guys wrestle with, after spending money to replace all the "crappy"
Phillips head screws. ;)
