+1. :yes: You could use some 400x silicone carbide paper (used dry), with a block, and then wipe down with lacquer thinner. Apply "Top Cote", which is now called "Glide Cote". IMO, much better than using any wax.
Evapo-Rust is seriously amazing stuff. I can't say enough about it. It's a soaking rust remover. Safe, non-corrosive, and re-usable over and over. No effort required. Just soak. Only downside is you have to be able to soak your rusty item in it. So if it won't fit in a big tub or container, it's hard to use. Buy it at harbor freight or many auto parts supply stores. Like $34 per gallon. Expensive...but remember it's re-usable many many times.

It's always been a bit of a pain that the mitre slots on my table saw are not the standard width. I've got the stule of Craftsman with the "tabs".
Today I finally found the time to change it. I used a nice new 3/4" Freud router bit amd routed the aluminum out with my router. It worked really...
