    Rust on Youde Aga T-7

    Hi Aussievapers,

    I just opened my Youde aga t-7 I got from vapeking a while ago as I decided to finally try a double coil build after using the Aga t-5 for sometime.

    However, upon opening it up I found some rust looking substance on the deck of the RBA, would it still be okay to use?

    I tried to wipe it off with some earbuds but it doesn't really come off well.

    Here is what it looks like:


    Hopefully you guys can give me some experienced insight into this :P

    Thanks,
    Kev

    Stainless is still prone to getting some amount of rust on it.
    give it a scrub with some vinegar and you'll be fine.
    Make sure you clean it out and dry it before storage next time

    Stainless steel is made in a way that rust or oxides cannot or should not occur. The rust can only be surface rust which also denotes low quality and low crome stainless steel. IMHO itsu a very low quality stainless steel.
    I will be travelling in time, please leave a message and I will get back to you last week.

    If treated or stored incorrectly, any grade of stainless steel may discolor or stain. To maintain optimum appearance, the surface should be cared for regularly.

    Stainless Steel is still steel,
    it is rust resistant,
    it is not rust proof

    Sorry CCVaper, wasn't trying to obnoxious, guessing you didn't take it that way anyway.
    cheers

    Should I let it soak in vinegar for an hour or so? Would it still be okay to use if I cleaned it appropriately.

    reckon if you dipped a cotton bud and gave it a rub most of that would come off straight away.
    Good rinse after and you're set.
    Soaking for an hour wouldn't hurt it but probably not necessary

    Thanks for the help, I'll give it a try now and let you know how it goes. Wonder if the rust spread inside the crevice you can see around the airhole in the middle.

    Scotch brite or or some wet and dry fine grade sandpaper will clean her up
