Default Removing Rust from a Jet Planer 6 inch

I have a friend which bought a Jet 6 inch planer for a job. He used it very little and it set under a Window AC unit in his shop. Well the bed and side piece rusted after a couple of years and he gave it to me because he did not want to deal with it. I covered it with my home made penetrating oil so it could soak into the rust. It has been soaking for about 6 months. I think I need to deal with it. What grit sand paper should I use? Should I start with 220 or coarser? There are no rust pits.

You can sand it off but that won't get it out of the pores of the metal. Here is a short video testing a rust remover from Woodcraft. Since doing the vedio I have used it on a number of other things and have gotten to really like it.

I would use wet/dry paper...the more coarse the paper the more work to finish it. Try a little bit higher grit (320) and see the effects, then drop down if you think it's okay. Don't use an ROS...it will leave a boatful of swirlies...

Use your favorite cutting/penetrating oil, put a block behind the paper and have at it. Then use higher and higher paper to finish to a polish.

When I restored my PM66 table saw I did it both dry and wet. Here's the story if you want to check it out - Restoration of PM66 table saw.

I feel your pain. This year has been freeeeeeeezing cold, then we get a warm flow out of the gulf and it goes up to a rainy 60 degrees. This has caused a lot of condensation on my tools while I am away, leading to rust on some of them. I hate wasting a day getting rust off of everything!

I use the Boeshield products, Rustfree and T9

Here are a couple pictures. I have soaked the rust with Stick's 50% Acetone 50%ATF over the last few months so I think the rust is soft and well soaked.

I am now thinking skipping the 220 wet dry paper and going straight to 320 wet or dry or maybe just a green scrubber. I have had good luck with 5% vinegar in the past. I don't if it would be better than the phosphoric acid...30%.
