How to Remove Rust from Woodworking Tool Surface

How to Remove Rust from Woodworking Tool Surface Using a Palm Sander and Seal Surface with Paste Wax

In this video I show you how to remove rust from woodworking tool surface and then how to seal it by applying paste wax. I used an orbital sander with 320 grit sandpaper to clear off any of the top layer rust then I sealed it with SC Johnson paste wax. When you apply the paste wax use a soft cloth that you can discard. Then you have to let the paste wax dry then clean off the excess with a clean soft cloth. You want to wipe off as much of the excess as possible so that it doesn’t transfer to the material that you are cutting.

Tools Required

In the video I used my DeWalt orbital sander with 320 grit sand paper. After I cleaned the surface I used SC Johnson Paste Wax to clean it off. Any shop rag or old t-shirt will work to apply and clean off the surface.

SC Johnson Paste Wax is available here.

Notes

I applied the same technique to my DeWalt DW735 planer surface and the Dewalt DW7531 attached folding tables. By doing this it reduces the chances of sniping while I plane wood.

My Craftsman Planer / Jointer shown in this video has some rust on it after standing water accumulated on it after pressure washing my garage door. I will revisit this by restoring the surface once again.
