This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in tool care.

Sometimes hand tools get rusty and need some tender loving care. Remove rust from a hand tool, clean it, and then, oil it.

Some possible handle tools for this BB are:
 - wrenches
 - hammers
 - drill bits
 - pliers
'  - pruners
 - knives
 - sickles
 - shears
 - any other hand with lots of metal bits

To get certified for this BB, post three pics:

  - pic of rusty tool
  - pic of rust being removed
  - pic of clean and oiled tool
  - description of oil used
