naval jelly and a long sanding block for finishing,I use mothers on my top, but then I use polish also and rough grit to start then a fine grit to smooth out the rough grit does that make sense, anyway my rust problems have stopped but I keep my saws planer jointer all covered with a blue type tarp all the time they only cost 10.00 or so and save you alot of headaches down the road fighting rust, but my shop is a metal building with no heat so I spend alot of time oiling and polishing but not like I use to, I remember when I got my first tablesaw I put it together and took all the cosmo off and left it a couple days well it rained every day come back out and it looked bad it took a whole 3 hrs to get the rust off it was brand new so I learned my lesson keep them covered.
