Electrolytic Rust Removal

The wrench started out rusty all over. I wire brushed it, used the electrolytic process and then wire brushed it again. Looks like there may still be a bit of rust in the hard to reach places, so I don't know if it just needs a bit more wire brushing, or more time in the soup. This is the very first time I have tried this process. Some references say that the process is "line-of-sight" between the rusty object and the anode.
