I wax the top of the cast iron/steel tables of my equipment with a good paste wax that is silicon free. I do this twice a year and it keeps the surface nice and clean and keeps it slick so the wood slides freely on the table. This works exceptionally well on the planer table. If I do get any rust on the tables (had this happen the other day because I left a piece of treated lumber on the TS and it must have contained some moisture) I use a dry coat and scotch guard pads to remove the surface rust.
