Do you have a table saw that hasn’t been used for a long time? When you need to use it, you see that the surface is extremely dirty and rusty. You wonder why? To answer this question is very simple. Most carpentry tools from a hand saw to table saws (As which you are using) are made of metal. Therefore, if you do not use it and clean it regularly, dirt or rust will likely stick on it. Don’t worry, it’s not that hard to deal with this problem. In this article, I will present some suggestions so you can turn your rusty saw back to new. Let’s read and explore.

table-saw

Step one: remove the parts on the surface of the table

 Moving parts that can move on the surface of the table. Examples are circular saw blades, fences, miter gauge, and other protective parts, … so that the surface of the table has no objects. Which can interfere with the cleaning and recovery process?

Then, use a razor or special scraping device to clean the rust (You can purchase them in grocery stores or shops that sell items related to woodworking tools)

Note:  Because the surface of the table by the metal is easily scratched or left marks. Therefore, you must be extremely careful and gentle when cleaning to not damage the surface.

Step two: Use clean liquid

To remove rust, use specialized detergents. If you don’t know which is the best and most effective. You can go to shops selling carpentry tools and ask to purchase. I’m sure there are enough things here.

Note: During the washing process, you must equip protective equipment such as gloves, masks, and glasses. Because these cleaners have very high chemical concentrations. If you accidentally eat or touch, it is extremely harmful to your body.

To effectively clean the rust, you must carefully clean and slowly, not miss any slot or groove. After making sure that the surface has been cleaned, leave the detergent absorbed for 20 minutes. Then, using a rag or towel to wipe the surface again. If you observe that the surface is clean and there are no leaks, apply an additional layer of antifouling paint to allow it to be used longer without having to wipe it again.

Step three: Clean bare metal

Forgot to tell you that the cleanser only cleans the orange and brown rust layer outside. The table saw is not perfectly clean and smooth. To remove the remaining rust, you need to use automotive polish or metal polishing agent and a wheel buff.

Note: Do not use goods that contain silicone. Because this substance is extremely harmful to the machine, it contaminates wood and finished products will lose all aesthetics. To check whether silicone contains. Please read carefully the product packaging where all components of the product are written.

Step four: Apply wax

After scouring the surface, use a towel to wipe off with solvent such as acetone until your wipes are free of any dirt. This makes the surface of the table completely clean and smooth. You must not ignore the slots and grooves on the surface of the table.

After it’s completely clean, it’s time to wax the cover to make sure it’s always bright and tidy. After utilizing wax, leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes to dry. Because for the first time, you should apply another layer of wax to ensure the surface defects have been completely removed.

Step five: Reassemble the parts back into position

After removing the rust of the surface, reassemble the parts of the machine back to its place. According to me, before reinstalling, you should also clear them a little more attractive and neat.

Step six: Enjoy!

After reassembling parts for the machine. Take a step back and see what work has been done successfully by yourself. Let your table saw always be the best portable table saw. Keep it in a cool place, avoid direct sunlight or humid places. Avoid having drinks or tools on the surface because they cause moisture to the device. The most important thing, please take care of the machine at regular prestigious facilities.

In conclusion

I have performed the steps to help you turn your old and rusty table saw into a new and beautiful look like you just bought. Hope, it is useful to you. Thank you for following the end of the article.

Therefore, in this article, we will explore the errors that you may encounter in the process of using circular saw blades and have a reasonable solution.

Problems and remedies when using circular saw blades.

The saw blade is cracked

This is the most common case and we would like to mention it first. The reason may be due to the wrong step of the tooth or the excessive sawing of the blade during the cutting of the material. It is also possible that the speed at which you put the material into the saw is too fast for the speed allowed.

Therefore, before selling saws to customers. Manufacturers need specific advice on the teeth of saws, the type of saw blades and the sawing capacity that can be made to best suit customer needs. There will be no perfect solution to this problem unless you are carefully advised by the engineers.

Saw cutting slowly

Many customers responded why their saw blades bought so slowly. In fact, the cutting speed depends greatly on cutting materials and saws, not saw blades. So, when you see the speed cut slowly, you should review your saw, see if they are damaged. If the saw is completely normal, review the compatibility between the saw blade and the saw. If they are not compatible, then both the cutting speed and the product quality are not standard.

Saws are easy to corrode

Worn teeth are also a common phenomenon that people use saw blades to reflect. When saw blades are easy to corrode, you should review the compatibility between saw blades and cutting materials. Not all saw blades can cut all kinds of materials, especially hard materials. Each saw blade model is only compatible with a certain group of materials. Therefore, you need to be careful when choosing materials to cut accordingly.

DIY white-washed patten floors

Well, what a weekend – need another weekend to get over the long weekend! But thrilled with the results of our newly white-washed, patterned floorboards in the Sunroom. If you missed it, here was the photo that inspired this look here. And the best thing, Mr B loves the floors!

emmyandmouse_floor_2

This was back-breaking stuff, but worth every ache and pain. A whole day of prepping and sanding the floorboards in the sunroom, mudroom and bar area. Having previously been an outside verandah, it had some serious coats of ‘weathshield paint’ but surprisingly the floorboards were in great condition.

Clean up: Cleaning up the fine dust left by the sander was quite the task – surprisingly how much is actually produced when sanding floorboards (3 buckets and one very full vacuum cleaner). We then wiped down every surface – walls, skirting boards etc and gave then wiped down with a damp cloth to pick up any extra dust – vital to ensure the next step didn’t involve dust in the paint or varnish.

Create diamond lines: Whether it was the complete exhaustion or too much dust in the brains, but calculating how big the diamonds and diagonals took a while – a sit down and cup of tea helped us to see the (quite obvious) light! We measured out each point with a nail, and then used string to link each diagonal point together. Once all the string was in place, we then went along with painters tape and taped the outside of each diamond – again a very time consuming task – but worth it!

Being painting: I used the Porters Paint White Wash, which we applied with paint brushes. Allowing the diamond to dry for 3-4minutes and then wiping it down with a clean cloth. This allowed me to rub the paint into the grain have really get that ‘white wash’ look.

Reveal: The paint dried very quickly and once we had reached the end, I went back and gently removed all of the tape – voila!

Clear satin varnish: Mr B started on giving the bar and mudroom a coat of Cabots Clear Polyutherine Floor coat (satin finish) and just before bed we did one coat of the diamonds. Followed by 2 more coats on Sunday. Now we are leaving the floors for 72hrs before we can place furniture back in.

We were all amazed with the final results and how it made the room so much lighter and helped it feel wider and larger. Can’t wait to spend time in this room, it brings a smile to my face each time I walk past.

Would love to hear your thoughts? Is this something you would try?
