« Part 8: 24hour results of EvapoRust and table, "hack" paint job Part 9 of Saving A Jet JWP-15CS From Dump series Part 10: Removed bearings, disassembled cutter head »

Used my 5” Random Orbital Sander with 280 grit then 400 grit, WD-40, mineral spirits, johnson paste wax. Good results. A slight minor blemish of swirl marks in one spot, may or may not try to tackle that before assembly.
When found:

As of today:

Next up: the 4 columns. These are rusted down the middle interior, exterior, rods, and the bearings. Will get 4 new bearings for the rods (I really need a bearing puller…especially with cutter head coming up eventually).

Are the bearings bad: seized/gritty sounding when turned? A shot of “Break Free” might be all they need.

Table came out looking like new!

Gfadvm… the bearings “work” as they rotate noiselessly. But, they were rusted top & bottom. Just to be safe, I will replace the 4 of them (I need the practice skill anyways) as I will do the same for the 2 cutterhead bearings.

Looks like it will be a new machine. I would definitely replace parts such as bearings when the machine is disassembled.

Probably not a bad plan to replace those bearings but the ones on it are probably servicable if they spin freely and are quiet. But like Julian said, you have easy access to them now.

Those 4 L-shaped nuts to the right of those columns… 3 of my 4 are broken. Just found them online. Obsolete, no longer available from mfr. The site (MM tools or something) used a substitute part number… no photo so fingers crossed!

Those L-shaped nuts are what moves the table up and down. Pretty beefy. Surprised they are broke.
