Table Saw Makeover

A smooth, clean surface on your table saw is more than just cosmetic, it’s a key factor in better cuts.

The table saw in my shop gets a pretty good workout. But honestly, there are some days I use my table saw without ever turning it on. In a small shop like mine, the extra worksurface provided by the table is a big plus. Depending on the task at hand, my saw table is often pressed into service as an assembly area, a sanding center, or even a finishing station. Unfortunately, this “moonlighting” has its consequences like smeared glue and finish, scratches, and even some rust. This article provides some tips and techniques to maintain your table saw top and keep it looking nice and in good working order for years to come.
