I'm restoring the Cast Irin Table iff my dad's old Craftsmen Table saw this weekend. I'm using ekextrokisis to take to he rust off, which should be fun.

My question is underneath the table , or the bottom of the table, I want to paint that so rust doesn't come back. I need a heavy duty rust resistant paint to use. I'm going to wax the top be ut underneath I get one good shot at.

What type of paint do I need?

Yes, Rustoleum, or Tremclad... I've used both and been happy with the results.

Paint it a reflective color or white, you won't be sorry in the future.

Wire brush it to remove loose rust, apply a rusty metal primer and then any high quality enamel paint for metal

Rustol , with a brush.
Is a perfect choice if there is still some little rust spots as it penetrate rust and makes
perfect coating to prevent moisture coming in. So rust stops.
It' s very fluid, it penetrates rust like oil would do .
It needs fine coats as it is very liquid.


First pieces of steel painted 3 coats 30 years ago are still standing the weather.
They still hold the pipe that exhaust combustion fumes from my central heater.
