Rust removal is generally done either by chemical or mechanical means.

Acids are generally the chemical method (phosphoric, HCl are 2 options for example)

Mechanical could be simple as sandpaper or grinder.

Each has pros and cons. Very situation or case by case dependent.

For cast iron, sandblasting is a common way used by many of the restoration shops. It gets down into rust pits where sanding/grinding/wire wheel can't. Grinding removes good metal just to get down into the pits of heavily rusted metal.

You might find a sandblasting operation nearby.

For rust freckles. Miracle water soak then 0000 steel wool or s.o.s. pads.

Moon creators, sandblasting then belt sander then buffing wheel then plating.

Plating is the biggest expense.
About $700ish for an oak stove.
About $1000 and UP for mica baseburner.
