The top of my old Delta table saw has several black spots that resisit all normal (including steel wool and light sandpaper) attempts to remove them.

They may be places where some blood got on the saw a few years ago.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to remove them?

I would just leave them. The only way I know of to get them off is to sand them, which, if there is nothing else wrong with your table top, sanding would be a bad idea, to me. My table saw has all kinds of blotches and spots but it works great, I’m not messing with it.

Why not just make the rest of the top match the spotted areas? Problem solved.

Have your say...
