Default Tornado Damages Jerry''s Shop

A twistger went through out place yesterday evening. We were lucky that no serious damage was done, but sure could have. We lhave trees down and things trewn evrery where.

One skylight panel was blown off of the shop and the inside of the shop was trenched. So far the greatest damage has been to the TS's table top, it is now solid orange with rust on one side, the other sice was covered with my MDF project from yesterday work, soit is not so bad.

I remember that there was a thread recently to do with removeing rust from a cast iron table top. Suggestions will be apprecistef. I will be looking for the esrlier thread on the subect.

The table on the band saw is O.K., it was covered, the Jointer was protected a little bit due to it's location in the shop. It will clean up without much effort I think.

Anyway, we were so lucky to not have had worse damage, needed the rain for th cotton crop which has to be planted before the 20th of June.

I've been using Boeshield T-9 for protection, and the Boeshield Rust-Free does a great job of clean-up with a Scotch-Brite pad. We live in a high humidity area and i'm impressed with the T-9. Sears carries it here, and I think boat dealers also. If you get on it pretty quickly, should be no problem at all.

PS--the Rust-Free is a mild acid, use appropriate cautions.

Mike, our forum liaison, used Trend bit and blade cleaner on something he forgot and left outside and said that it worked well. I've seen that either CLR or WD40, or maybe both of them, have rust removal formulas now too. I saw an article in Fine Woodworking on rust prevention a few months back and WD40 was one of the best rust preventatives in their trial but the Trend formula was not in the trial.

I'm glad to hear it wasn't worse.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I just started on the table top in a small ares with WD40 and 220 on my vibrating sander, the clean up won't be to bad. I know that I have mention using the paper on the top in the past and some members did't think that it was a great idea, but have used it for the past three years with no problems. I do know that the 220 grit paper is the courses paper that I will use, anything courser than the 220 will not produce a polished effect as the finer papers will do.

I found that there is a panel right above where the TS in the roof is gone too, i moved the saw and am hoping that the roof can be repaired before we get more rain.

I used mineral spirits with synthetic pad (white). After getting rust off, removed mineral spirits remnants with denatured alcohol. Once rust is removed and table clean, you must protect top. Boeshield T-9 is one good product, but Bostik "GlideCote" was recommended to me and I prefer it and am now using it regularly on table.

Jerry, glad no serious damage. Where are you located?

Steve,

I'm in West Texas about 65 west of Abelene and 40 miles east of Big Spring just north of Interstate 20, about three miles, near Colorado City.

Jerry, sorry for the damage, but glad it's not worse for you. In addtion to the suggestions for cleaning the top, (I use WD-40 and a Scotchbrite pad) I finish with a coating of Johnson's Paste Wax. It doesn't have any additives that will stain your wood like a lot of auto wax will.

Glad to hear that no one was injured during the storm, Jerry.

I could live without a saw, but an arm or leg removed would make life difficult.....

Jerry,

I live in a subtropical, humid environment, and my workshop is on my back verandah semi-protected from the weather, i.e it's open on three sides but the roof is big enough that I can still work most times while it is raining. I use WD40 and a rag on my cast iron surfaces and that seems to work quite well. If you only had the water damage in the last few days, then the rust will not have penetrated at all. In my experience (which may or may not work elsewhere) I have sprayed on the WD40 and left it for at least an hour to soak, and then just cleaned it off with a rag. Works for me - hope there is something there for you as well.

Darryl
