We are experiencing an unusual amount of rust and staining on the machine decks due to warmer temperatures and higher humidity in the shop so I’m asking all members to help out with a light sanding and oiling of the machine decks when working in the shop.
Thanks to @bbchops for making me aware of the problem and working on the machines this past weekend!
I’ll set up a container with sanding blocks, fine grit paper, and lubricant tomorrow.
Process would be to use the a small (less is better - Just enough to glide the abrasive) amount of oil and a sanding block (600 grit or finer) to remove corrosion over the entire deck. Light pressure and a circular motion work best. After - remove all excess thoroughly with a paper towel.
I’ll be in Wednesday noon to early evening, and again Saturday morning if anyone would like a quick bit of instruction.
