    De-Rust Your Old Table Saw

    Here is a link to the dry lube spray I like. It's a Molybdenum Disulphide spray and it will last a long time! Doesn't interfere with any finishes.https://www.mcmaster.com/#1409k66/=15r6i0s

    I live near the ocean, thank the Gods, so my iron tool tables rust quickly. To stop steel or iron tables from rusting, I make plywood surface covers that have small pieces of wood glued to their undersides that engage the miter slots and edges of the tables this makes them into work surfaces when the tool isn't needed, protects them from damage, preserves the wax finish, and completely stops rust! They are easily removed and set aside, or even hung on the side of the tool stand or base when the tool is in use. I've done this for thirty years and it works great. It also adds valuable work surfaces! Add a layer of Masonite to the tops to make them easily replaceable.

    a more modern and better way to lubricate a tool table is with a Molybdenum Disulfide Spray. These are dry lubes that bond to the iron surfaces and last years. They do not impede finishes and preserve the metal. They are used as release agents for molds too, sand can be found in industrial supply sources like McMaster.com (I was a special effects modelmaker for 25 years at the top of the industry. This is for real, friends.)
