  • Naval jelly rust remover

    does anyone have any first hand experience with this product relative to removing heavy surface rust from cast iron tool tables?

    http://www.loctiteproducts.com/produ...id=47&plid=169

    the used band saw i recently purhchased has some heavy rust.



    the usual approaches of scotchbrite type scrubbers, sanders, sand paper (220 only) and wd-40 and topsaver have been effective at smoothing the surface, but not removing all the embedded stains. personal insights would be appreciated. thanks.

    Naval jelly although called a "rust remover" really dosnt remove rust But rather changes it into something else, usualy a hard black kind of surface where the rust used to be. It seems to be akin to Carbon sotra like how you make a regular metal pan non stick.

    Is the pic you posted the top "After" you sanded it with whatever you used and the WD-40? If so you need to put in alot more elbow grease into that puppy.

    Keep sanding, polishing, whatever till it some what shines then just coat it with wax , car polish , light machien oil whatever.

      the above photo was the before. here is the same top after much work with wd-40, steel wool, sand paper, a vibrating finishing sander, a ROS finishing sander and elbow grease. the best result was achieved using topsaver and a coarse scotch brite type pad with some consistent elbow grease:

      3 coats of johnson paste wax made the top very slippery. interestingly, the paste wax peformed better when it was not allowed to haze over before removal. just slathered it on, wiped it off with a rag and then buffed it with a clean piece of terry cloth towel. now that the new blade is on, it cuts like a champ. i'd say it was well worth it's $38 cost . i should add that when i picked the saw up from the seller, the miter gauge was rusted into the miter slot!

        $38 for a Jet, it would have been worth it if you had to replace the top.

        Nice pickup. That's the reason I spend 5 minutes a day on Craigslist.
