« Part 4: second wing cleaned up... Part 5 of Jet cabinet saw re-hab series Part 6: Blog / project resurrection.... »

Doggy pool wasn’t big enough to submurge the main section of the top, so I had to sacrifice some old t-shirts to the cause and use the wet cloth soak method…. didn’t work out quite as well as submerging the extension wings did…. but not too bad.

I think I’m done with the rust removal untill after I reassemble the top… which will be a while.

Next up is to do a thorough cleaning of the cabinet, and see what conditon the arbor bearings are in, and whether or not I can free up the tilt and blade height mechanisms.

I decided to pick up a Leecraft phenolic ZCI…. here it is next to the old insert that was on the saw.

I suspect I’ll be needing to mill a slot for the splitter…. Unless I decide to install a Shark Gaurd.

not exactly setting the world on fire here…. but I’m happy to be making progress of some sort.

I think this is in the wrong blog series…

WD-40 and some 220 wet and then 320 wet will make that top look good as new.
