Topic tags/keywords: drill press protectant mobile base question

Just finished assembly of my new Ridgid DP-1550 Drill Press. Assembly went very well and other than needing a slight adjustment to the motor height to align the motor pully to the quill pulley everything else was in spec. and run out on the quill is almost nill. I promise to do a complete review and pics in a few days after I build a mobile base (looking for some ideas) and drill press table for it.

Question? Do any of you LJ’s have a recommendation of what to use to remove the protectant from the table and other surfaces so I can apply some paste wax? Have same issue on protectant applied to the tables on my new Ridgid JP0610 jointer that was assembled a few days ago.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Happy New Years to all!

Buy a steel wool pad for your random orbital sander and use it with some WD-40. I know my local Acme tool store carries the steel wool pads. Not sure about anywhere else.

Kerosene will take it off in a jiffy. You can buy small bottles of clear kerosene lamp oil at WalMart.

Have your say...
