Do these "Stop rust in it's tracks" claims actually have any truth to them?
I have some spots of rust https://10carbest.com/best-rust-converters that are in a "helluva job to cut out and weld" spot and I obviously need to stop it, so, what is the way forward, please?

You cannot stop rust as long as there is moisture/damp/water and any amount of oxygen present, and if the piece of steel/iron is in contact with a more corrosion resistant metal that will make it even worse. The best you can hope for is to slow the process down.

Remember iron/steel is obtained from iron ore using huge amounts of energy, and it is the natural order of the universe to want to return it to that state and release that energy.

Hope you're not talking about a Bolt. If so, where, exactly, are the rust spots?
