Battery Corrosion

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm looking for some tips on how to best deal with removing battery corrosion from a plate.  

The plate below is from my father's Accutron 218.  The battery failed and leaked at some point leaving a salt-like deposit that seems to be insoluble.  I've tried an acid bath (vinegar), alkali bath (sodium bicarbonate), and good old fashioned elbow grease to no avail.  At this point I'm thinking of just letting it be since it seems the plating is flaking off beneath and the corrosion shouldn't impact the function of the movement.

If anyone knows about a magic bullet though I'd sure like to hear.  :huh:IMG_1544.JPGIMG_1543.JPG
