I couldn’t find an intro section for new members so I chose this section. Hi from sunny Melbourne, Australia (well not so sunny…we are not having the greatest of summers so far).
I started workwork a few years ago and got myself a Triton workcentre 2000 table saw. I spent more time trying to set the fence then actually making projects. So I passed this setup to my brother in law, just keeping the Triton Router table – at least this works like it should.
Anyway I recently picked up an old Jacobs csk10 10” table saw manufacture date 1984. I can’t find any info on it so searching the web I came across this website and one of your members Hutch seems to have the same saw but possibly rebadged.
Anyway the saw is in need of a strip down and clean. The top plate seems true but rusty. Top tip I used rust converter. I brushed it on and let it sit for 5 minutes, letting it bubble away then wiped off. The plate came up like new. I wasn’t expecting that to be honest but thought it would turn black. The top plate looks like new metal. The same results as if you used Molasses (Treacle for the English). Another good tip if you haven’t tried that.
I look forward to contributing and sharing my projects on this forum.
