I have a 10" old, old delta table saw (tilting table) and a 6"jointer that have been siting in a garage for the last 10 years. What would be the best way to clean the rust of the tops. How about navel jelly and then sanding with a obital (sp) sander. I also hear the use of wax mentioned quite a bit in these posts ,:smile:what type ? auto wax or is there a special type to keep rust from reappearing. Thanks for any advice. BOB Mcintyre

Green Scotch Brite pads and WD-40 work well for removing rust. Johnsons paste wax works for the top. You don't want to use car wax as most has silicone in it and will cause finish problems with wood. Johnsons paste wax can be found by cleaning supplies in almost any box store. It comes in a yellow and red can.
