"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."

"I would be very reluctent to put any thing on the top that has a silicone base. I would agree with Will Sampson. We use Elemer's Slide-All on table tops as a general purpose lubricant to slide boards across."

"A good idea where moisture is present is to have good circulation in this area where rusting is forming on your machinery using fans,roof vents etc. Alot of elbow grease sanding from course to fine and then there is a lubercant wax lit that I use on…"

"Don't use any kind of wax on your saw table. Most waxes contain silicone and can create havoc on finishes. The only wax that I recomend is S.C. Johnson Paste wax. It comes in a 16oz. can; bright yellow with a red stripe. I never had a problem…"

"I use pads (sometimes blanket called Scotchbrite) to polish up the tops. Then I wax with a silicon free product. Worst case jobs will require a touch with a fine abrasive (400 or so) and some lube like mineral spirits or WD 40. There are those who…"

"Naval jelly to get rust off. Paste wax to keep it off. Make sure that the wax does not have silicone. I live in the Philippines the humidity is literally 100 percent 4 months out of the year. It is over 80% the rest of the year. Battling rust is a…"

"I used WD40 and fine grit sandpaper to remove the rust. Used a degreaser to remove the residual WS40 and 3 coats of Johnsons paste wax and a electric buffer for a smooth mirror shine. Depending on the amount of usage, repeat once every 3-4 months."

"Jim, using the silicone spray you have no issues with finishing later? I was always under the impression that it was a good idea to stay away from using silicone where unfinished wood products would come in contact. The reasoning was that the…"

"Really bad rust will come off with naval jelly and elbow grease. Mild surface rust will come off with any medium grit emery paper. Silicone lubricant in an aerosol spray works great to keep rust off and leaves no residue when wiped dry. Lumber goes…"

tablesaw maintenance

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.
