« Part 2: mover over Barbie.... Evapo-rust is movin' in Part 3 of Jet cabinet saw re-hab series Part 4: second wing cleaned up... »


and after

the weird thing about this Evapo-rust stuff… is that no matter how much you wipe it clean, it still turns a white paper towel black.


I was planning to hit the table with my jitter bug sander and mineral spirits when all done…. perhaps that will take it down to bare metal again…..

Not sure if you can tell by the photo, but the table has some deep scratches in it…. I suspect someone cut lumber with exposed nails…. more than once.

second wing is in the juice now….

In the before picture, the one on the right you can see the scratch. Really should not effect the overall operation or accuracy of the saw. I’m sure it bugs ya, but someday it will just melt away from your mind and you will hardly notice anymore.

with evaporust, I clean the parts with light warm soapy water after they are soaked, then spray them with WD-40 to disposition the water, and wipe with a paper towel. I’ve never had the towels turn black.
