I just finished cleaning up a jointer as well. I used mineral spirts and wet/dry sandpaper. With the mineral spirts on the table I started with 220 grit wet and dry sandpaper and using full strokes go from one side to the other. I did several times Until I felt no odd surfaces remaining. Cleaned, checked if smooth, followed the same process then went to 240, then 280, then into the 300’s, then 400’s then finally the 600’s. Wiped clean then cleaned with paint thinner. Wiped clean several times then applied three layers of johnson’s past wax. It turned out very nice.
