« Part 3: first wing cleaned up Part 4 of Jet cabinet saw re-hab series Part 5: more progress on the top... »

not to shabby….

I took a putty knife to the blotches on the first one and they scraped right off. I’m guessing that the rust was thicker there and because I only soaked them for ~3 hrs, it wasn’t enough time to react through it all in those areas.

plan is to jitterbug them with a splash of mineral spirits

and then hit them with a greenie and barkeepers friend (don’t tell my wife please)

then some paste wax and hopefully call it done.

I’m at a loss for a container large enough for the main top….. may build a shallow tray out of 1×4 and particle board and line it with a garbage bag.

For the top, use a heavy (contractor) garbage bag.. some of them are 7 mils thick.

He wouldn’t mind me borrowing it would he?
