Here’s my next attempt at cleaning up the top of my TS.
I used more Naval Jelly and heavier automotive sandpaper (180 grit).
After rinsing off the Naval Jelly, I followed up with lots of WD-40 and Scotchbrite pads.
I’m happier with these results. I just have some spots(at the back), that are stubborn. I’m going to finish with some Rust Free. I’m in no rush though, at least now I can use the saw.
