Re: Cleaning a rusty table saw top
I use a orbital sander and 220 grit paper. Shines like a mirror and keeps the surface flat. WD-40 works well but Liquid Wrench does better. I was using car paste wax (Mc Quires) for years but on this season I am trying CRC Industrial 3-36 since the Fine woodworking mag hit it for like the 3rd year running as the overall best protection (that does not affect the wood finishes). I will let you know what I think of it. I had a hard time finding it so I got if from Grainger ($9 for 16 oz if memory serves). Wax always left black marks when I did glue ups on the table saw.
