Re: Rusty Table Saw top
If it's just surface rust spray it down with WD40 and scrub with 0000 steel wool or one of those green ScotchBrite Pads, you can even put the steel wool or pad down and use a RO sander on top of it to speed up the cleaning. If it's very heavy rust use Naval Jelly scrub with steel wool, then the WD40 and scrub. Once clean you will want to coat with a non water based wax. An easy way to keep that up is get a roll of wax paper tear off a length, crumble and rub it on the saw table. That will wax the top.
Or you can do as I prefer and get the Boshield Products. Clean with the Rust Free then coat with the T-9. Follow directions on can.
