« Part 7: Washed base, panels. Motor rust concern. Bolts & Nuts Part 8 of Saving A Jet JWP-15CS From Dump series Part 9: Lower table ROS'd, mineral spirited, paste waxed. Also, about to tackle gummy rusty columns »

Good results from EvapoRust (yet, once again!). Here, the table is 5 minutes removed from my makeshift lower planer table holding jig (sheet metal and evaporust) and after a gentle washing. Have to ROS sand this week and research cleaning and protecting cast iron table tops (has been a while since doing my jointer beds). Table is not in bad shape at all, except for a dime size area of severe pitting, which I guess stays forever?

And my shhhhhh don’t look closely hack paint job:

Looking good! The paint job looks fine from here. Just ROS that cast iron (120-180 grit) and keep it waxed and you will have a smooth, slick surface that will not rust.

You could give those panels a light sanding and paint the whole thing. Then you wont have those splotchy areas that dont quite match.

I’ll live with the hack paint job, Joe. But will ask around about sand blasting this week. I still have that option until I start putting everything back together. I’m a telephone man (somewhat like AT&T techs you see driving around) so know alot of customers with blasting equip. I’ll have to ask a favor or small fee to blast all pieces. I’m sure, I can primer & paint myself (well, with my dinky Summit HVLP). But if sand blasting does not get done, I’ll survive with the panel pieces as is.
