    Fellow joiners....
    Can someone give me some kind of input to treat the table of my saw (re: humidity) have noticed the table getting a stain (pre-rust) marks due to the moisture, de-humidifier doesn't seem to cut it, need something that doesn't collect any dust ect.
    Regards
    TJ.

    I was using Bostic top cote but that does not even last a week, makes a nice slick surface when using the tool but every time I would turn up the heat I could see rust begin to form. I put a coat of Johnsons paste wax on it about a month ago and still no rust. There are fancier chemicals on the market that are supposed to be better like the Bosheild products but Wax is easy to find, lasts forever in the can and will not harm you if you get any on your skin, works for me and it looks like we are in roughly the same climate

      I also use Johnsons paste wax about once a month. Works great. [img]smile.gif[/img]

        I like paste wax and if you are in a garage, non heater, put a cover, towel, anything to keep moisture from collecting on it.

            Should this be used in conjunction with steel wool?

            Thanks!

              Mabey too late to help but I've used Mothers paste wax for years. Once a month does it. Mine looks like new and slides like silk. Mothers is an automotive wax.
              Good Luck

                You can use #0000 steel wool or a green scrub pad to remove any rust, but I just use a soft rag to apply and buff the wax.

                  A big key is what someone mentioned above. Put some kind of cover over it and keep the cover flat to the table. I struggled with rust no matter what I used until I put canvas over it.

                    CO2BOB,
                    Don't use automotive wax! I have read about this in all Table Saw books...and darn it, I can't remember why. I think it has somethign to do with one auto wax component that'll rub off on the wood and prevent the finish from adhering to it.

                      Generally speaking, automotive waxes contain silicon. The silicon can rub off on your wood and can wreck your finish.

However, Johnson's paste wax is nearly pure carnuba. I concur with the others. Johnson paste wax or any pure carnuba wax will work great.

                          By the way, do you know a Corporal Butthead? [img]tongue.gif[/img] You knew that was coming sooner or later, so I thought I would just get it out of the way.
