What’s the best way to get surface rust off a table saw top without damaging it?
My saw top got rusty due to my dehumidifer being placed too close to it. I moved that, but want to know what to do about the table top. I don’t want to run wood threw it and get it all rust stained.

Try to cut a lemon and rub the lemon on the rust. Then you try a damp soft cloth with some baking soda on it to see if you can cleen it up.

Get a block of wood and affix some fine wet and dry paper to it (180 – 200 would be OK).
Run the saw and place the block against each side of the saw and hey presto it will clean off the rust.

I assume you are talking about the table top get some steel wool and wd40 spray the surface with it and start scrubbing it’ll take a little elbow grease but will give you the best results.

Get some rust remover or WD-40 and use a plastic scrubber to rub it into the rust. Wipe it clean with paper towels and repeat until it is gone.
