Rust Free bubbles as it penetrates
and breaks down the rust. It also
emits a strong odor, so work in a
well-ventilated area.

rust on our set of cast-iron
tablesaw wings, each requiring
about 5 minutes.

Boeshild Rust Free

Boeshield Rust Free attacks rust with a phosphoric-acid formula, so when applying it wear latex or rubber gloves to prevent skin burns. Spray Rust Free onto affected areas, allow it to penetrate for 30 to 60 seconds, and then scrub with a scouring pad or steel wool, middle photo. (If left on more than a couple of minutes, Rust Free will create dark stains that could become permanent on cast iron.) Repeat if necessary. This product removes the rust as well as dark stains, but it dulls the patina, bottom photo. If you're cleaning only part of the top, this dull look will be noticeable.

Good luck finding anywhere to buy Top Saver! As far as I could determine, there is only one company that sells the product in a separate bottle and they have not had any available for the last two months. You can find kits that contain Top Saver, but then you have to buy other products that come with the kit. Top Saver works great, I would love to be able to buy more and hope that maybe someone out there knows where it is available!

Whenever I get rust on my 66 year old cast iron table saw top I use WD-40 & a piece of fine grit (300) emery paper. It leaves a fine protection on my saw when I'm done.
