Rusted TS Trunnion

Hi all,
I am looking for advice on how to remove rust from the trunnion on my older Crafstman 10" table saw. I usually use Naval Jelly on the cast iron top, but I don't know a practical way to handle the rust that has taken over the less accessible, intricate areas on the trunnion. Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks,
Art

A "practical" way may involve some disassembly, if you've a mind to do so. Maybe do a Google search for "electrolytic/electrolosis" rust removal. I hear it's very effective if done properly. Other than that, what about a good soaking in a spray solvent, then a greasing/oiling? Tom Someday, it'll all be over....

Can't help much for the trunions, but the naval jelly may work there. Or you can try Top Saver, depending on just how bad it is.
For the top, a better way is to use a product called Top Saver. It sprays on, soaks a bit, then you scrub it off using a couple of abrasive pads supplied. Cleaned my top as good as new. Then I used Top Cot, but Boeshield is equal or better for preventing rust. Apply the coating and you should never need the Top Saver again.
