Cleaning Set Plaster from Tools


Hi, just joined this great forum. Ive got some rasps that were used to grind off green plaster. The plaster set on them, not pratically impossible to clean all the little teeth with wire brush. Is there a chemical base or acid that would react with the plaster to chemically remove it from the tools?

That would be interesting if true. Those nest are hard to get rid of.

I wonder in vinegar would help get rid of the plaster. I've seen it used (soaking) to get concrete off of steel parts.
