I am taking apart a G1022 TS that I got to clean it up change the bearings and just learn more about the TS in general. The image is of the bar that comes out of the TS carcass to adjust the blade height and blade angle. The thing I am trying to remove is the little post thing that is sticking through the bar. It looks like all I need to do is just punch it through with a hammer and a narrow piece of metal or something.

Before I did that I wanted to make sure that is he proper way to remove it and I don’t want to break it.

I was able to fit a 1.5mm hex through that little bolt or whatever it is.

Also, what should I use to clean up the TS base and stand? Just soap and water or water and vinegar solution? I got krud kutter to clean up the rust and the inside parts of the arbor/rotary parts.

If it’s what I think you are talking about (Part #97 on this diagram), then it’s just a spring pin (roll pin). There are special punches for them to keep from mushrooming them out, which are flat on the tip, but with a little ‘ball’ in the middle. You can use a regular pin punch if you have the right size, or sometimes you can squeeze them closed and pull/twist them out.

As for cleaning… the ‘krud cutter’, which is a cleaner/degreaser, will work as good as anything… but I doubt you will be getting rid of much rust. And even if you do – without treating it somehow, it will just come right back. Easiest would probably to clean as good as you can and then wipe it down with a dilute solution of phosphoric acid. Not perfect, but better than nothing. If there is quite a bit of rust, you might want to consider stripping it down (media blasting, wire brushes, electrolysis, etc…) and re-painting.

Yes it is number 97. And ok so I should be able to punch the bottom of that pin which looks to be split and twist/pull that sucker out then?

If so I will give that a try here in a minute.

It is very little surface rust with not putting. I was able to get one of the wings to look decent with just a wire brush. Not great looking but decent.

I have paste wax to put on the cast iron when it is all clean. Also I live in Colorado so there is practically no humidity here lol so that is a plus
