So I finally got my table saw but between putting in a new lawn, trying to get the garage organized, and getting the house & family ready for a baptism this weekend, I haven’t been able to get it put together. I have it on some mover dolly-type-things that I built, in the garage. Last night I was working on the lawn when a storm blew in really quickly. The garage doors were open, & the wings got some water on them. I wiped them dry & sprayed some Topcoat on them. I went back out a couple hours later & there was a fair amount of surface rust already forming. I never expected these things would show rust THAT fast!
The previous owner had the saw in his basement, & I don’t think he ever waxed the top, so I’m sure that’s a factor. I’m planning to clean up the top with wd-40 to hopefully get rid of the rest of the rust, then wax. Is there anything else I should do? I want to wax the wings before I assemble so that I can wax the sides before they butt up to each other..
Also, I just read a post (different site) recently that said, “wax with a past wax (not automotive wax)...” I was thinking that I WAS supposed to use automotive wax. If not, what exactly is the correct wax to use?
thanks in advance!
