Default combination table saw and jointer restoration

I recently received the above mentioned combo. It is in decent shape model # for the saw is 103-22160 and the jointer is 103-23340. Both have some rust and some staining on the tops what would be the best way to remove the rust and polish the tops? Also, if I need to paint some of the other areas where could I match the craftsman paint from this era (1952 I think). The stand has lockable wheels and the pair share a 3/4 hp motor #115-7167.

Thanks,
John

This is a web site that should be a good starting point on finding a paint match. Old Wood-Working Machines (OWWM) - Welcome

John, I just bought a cabinet saw this week. The owner had bought it at a sale a couple years ago, stored it at work (a distillery) and never did set it up. It was in perfect condition except the top was covered in rust. After a search on the net, I decided to just try vinegar and fine steel wool. It worked great. There is a wee bit of staining left, but nothing that bothers me.

Good luck with your restore project.

JIM

I have had very good results with wd 40 and a wire brush on a hand grinder setup for rust removal make sure you use eye protection
