Rust Spots


What are the different methods to remove rust spots from power tools? – Andy Young


Joe Barry replies: 0000 steel wool and elbow grease works well. There are also rust erasers. On a machine which doesn’t need to be dead flat and accurate, like a disk sander, I’ve taken my random orbit sander with a 320 grit pad to it – that sound you hear is the purists wanting to tar and feather me.
