I just got a Delta 17-900 drill press from a neighbor I have been helping a lot remodel his kitchen. he can’t use it anymore because of his Parkinson’s disease (which is why I was helping him).
it runs just fine, but has accumulated a little rust from no-use and neglect over the past few years. In my opinion the bigger part of it is an eyesore rather than affecting the travel(s) of the press up and down, left and right of the table. Some of it DOES affect it, as there is some binding that comes in to play. I’m trying to get some help on the best way to remove as much rust as possible for both aesthetic reasons as well as functionality (ease of movement). What do you folks is the best way to attack this issue? I have attached some photos to show what I am referring to.
