Just purchased a Delta TS350 (yep, I know there are much better saw's,
but this fit my constraints on space right now).
Anyway, after seeing many posts about Topcoat here, I picked up a can
when at my local Woodcraft. Unpacked the saw, cleaned it with
kerosene (sp?) per the instructions, checked it with a dial-caliper
(blade was only out by 0.003"), then pulled out the Topcoat.
Read the directions (Spray on a light coat, let dry for a couple of
minutes, wipe off). Seemed pretty simple, so I sprayed on a light
coat, waited a couple of minutes and wiped off with a paper towel. I
looked at the table and it looked like the coverage was thin in a
couple of places, so sprayed on a slightly heavier coat, waited, and
I just checked it tonight (4 nights later), and I'll be darned if
there isn't some small amount of rust on it already. Now, I live in
Florida (land of liquid air and none-too-intelligent voters), but I'm
trying to figure out where I went wrong!!! What exactly does a "light
coat" consist of?
Any hints here on where I screwed up would be really appreciated,
along with any hints on a good way to remove the existing rust, and
correctly protect the top this time!!!
Thanks in advance!!!
