We have been having afternoon thunder bumpers, but no rain. Sure is nice to enjoy the cool air in the afternoon.
Today, a big one snuck up on me and it starting pouring. I had the big doors open and it took a minute to get everything inside.
Closed the big doors and went inside for lunch.
Came back and noticed (in the glare kinda) that there were standing water spots on the out feed table behind my TS blade. Looked closer at it and saw about 100 little surface rust spots on the cast iron table.
I kinda pride myself in taking care of my cast iron tops. I didn’t use to, but since getting better equipment and learning more on LJ, I have been taking care to keep them clean, polished and waxed. Never any drinks or glue bottles on the TS saw.
I waxed this table less than a month ago.
So, I grabbed the medium and fine grit SandFlex…......they work great….......and got the rust gone and everything re-waxed.
I am still having a hard time believing that just a little rain, almost a mist caused that rust on (what I thought was) a well waxed and cared for cast iron table.
