    If you can remove the rusty cast iron parts put the in a citric acid bath, I am a recent convert to citric acid.

    Not sure I'm inclined to strip it down to that extent Mark. I could catapult a few lemons at it though

    Cutting the musical notes has come to an end due to me managing to break three scrollsaw blades in one day whereas the first blade lasted three days before needing to replace. Now need to order more

    Just try 0000 wire wool or nyweb and a little oil or even dry with the nyweb then degrease and give it a coat of woodwax22 this will help preserve it and slow any return of rust as well as make it easy for the wood to slide. I do this on my bandsaw and it protects it even when I am cutting wet wood.

    Today was the dreaded shopping day for all the essentials, then home to be reminded that the mower needed attention and that if I repaired it the wife would cut the front lawn. Mower now fixed as well as blades now ordered

    I haven't tried this method, on the Aussie metal work forum, a number of people used Evaporust, soak some paper towel, lay it on a the flat surface and cover it with plastic.
    I will be trying this later, on my table saw.

    I can't decide whether to be a good example, or a horrible warning!
