  • Keeping a tablesaw table new like?

    I just purchased a TS3660 at HD in Colorado, for 388.16 at the door, Just wondering is there anything I can do to the tabletop to keep it in good shape?

    Welcome to the Forum and enjoy your new TS.
    The best thing to start out would be to search the WWing forums and read the threads on assembling the 3650 and 3660. You'll find tips in there on caring for the TS top, and links to other threads with more info.

    But in short I cleaned mine off with kerosene and a couple rags then applied two coats of Butchers Wax. DON'T use automotive wax as it contains silicone and will cause you problems when you go to finish your wood.

      That is correct.
      Finishers (like myself) will bietch up a storm....
      Although a good finisher will wipe down as best as possible, there will certainly be a chance of fisheyes.
      Even using a fisheye reducer.
      Also, try never to spray silicone around your unfinished wood, as it will leave thousands of FEs.

          Welcome!
          Just my 2c, but I use a paste wax for wood floors ...Johnson's (I think)Looks good and slick

          Everyone is correct, stay away from any product containing silicone.

          Enjoy that TS, I love mine.

            A funny note on that, when I worked for a company.
