I would like advice on cleaning the cast iron surface of a TS2424 table saw. The saw I have was a demnonstator model I purchased from Home Depot during the last days of 2001. Its surface had advertising stickers, one covering the plastic insert and one approx 5 inches wide covering the right side from front to back adjacent to the mitering slot. I peeled off of the stickers and used a solvent recommended by the HD clerk to remove the adhesive gum residue. The solvent removed the residue very well. The plastic insert was left with minor blemishing I can probably live with but the cast iron surface I like to know if there is something I can do. Where the large sticker was there is now a shiny, pristine patch surrounded by a thin, dark border. I suspect that during the saw's time as a demonstrator it had a liquid spilled on it, likely coffee, and that this border is a rust stain. When I disassembled the table to move it to my basement I also notice the same stains at the extension joints. There is also a cup ring on the surface. Is there anything I can due to remove the stains and brighten up the remainder of the surface to match the freshly exposed patch?
No announcement yet.
