don’t use a sander on your machined surfaces. If your table is near flat (within a couple thousandths), it would not be when your done. Random orbital sanders are not made to keep machined surfaces flat. If you took your table to a machine shop, they wouldn’t hit it with a R.O.S.

I just used vinegar to clean up a machine i’m restoring. Works well. I start with vinegar and 0000 steel wool. then I use the boeshield products. Using the rust remover, and finish it off with the T-9…...
some people say T-9 or wax gets on there finishes. I’ve personally never had that problem. but, I also only do natural finishes, so it could possible affect stain.
