  • Keeping Your Table Saw Top Clean and Rust-Free


    Although it does require a bit of elbow grease to keep your table saw top clean and rust-free, it’s also a very simple and worthwhile process. Using circular motions and a white Scotch-Brite pad, thoroughly rub WD-40, CRC, cutting oil, or something similar onto your entire saw top. Use a clean, dry rag (or several) to then wipe the solution from the table top and apply a few coats of wax (butcher’s wax or paste wax) to keep it smooth and protected.
