What is the best thing I could use to clean my shaper table top?

It depends, what's on it? grease? dirt? paint? I'd use WD40 or other spray lube, any silicon free product. Mineral spirits will remove grease and grime. I use Gibbasize on my tools. It's a light oil product: http://gibbasize.info/index2.html

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I bet it's surface rust. I sand mine with 320 grit sandpaper and wax with Johnson paste wax.

It's basically dirt, grease and glue.

A sharp scrapper for the glue.

After that I do the same as Woodsandthings except I use fine steel wool instead of sandpaper.

I typed one message and another one posted. Basicly said the same thing Cabinetman said only I'm too cheap for Top Cote. I use Johnson Paste Wax.

For glue...a scraper or chisel, or a putty knife/spatula. For grease and dirt...mineral spirits, or lacquer thinner. For rust, wet-or-dry silicon carbide sandpaper if very bad, or a micro fiber pad. I wouldn't use steel wool...shards from it can rust. Bronze wool, or stainless steel wool, or a synthetic "wool". For a treatment, Top Cote works pretty good.
