Does anyone out there have a suggestion on the best way to remove rust from a tablesaw table?and keep it off? It seems like I read once that steel wool and car wax works well but then I was told that the wax will affect finishing. I live in the northwest where we get a lot of rain.

There's a Canadian company, high quality tools, called Lee Valley Tools, that has a good product. Have a look at this:,4...
Make sure there is no containers of muratic acid anywhere there is steel!
I had a rust problrm for several years, then a friend ask if I had some acid, and I gave it to him to keep.
Rust problem gone---down the street to his shop. When he got rid of it his problem was gone also.
That stuff is bad even with the lid on tight!!!!

I`ve used" top coat " , had good results with that but I don`t have a lot a moisture in my shop either.It stays about 40% humidity.{ acording to my meter } I was also told to use lemon pledge. Great for slipperiness, not as expensive but you may have to use it a little more often !

Remove rust with elbow grease, coat with Penetrol, let that dry and then wax with furniture paste wax once a month. The Penetrol really seals the metal.
