Any mildly aggressive solvent (mineral spirits, for example, or WD-40)
reinforced by a vigorous application with a scotchbrite pad will do a
nice job of removing light-to-moderate surface rust. It won't help
with pitting, but pitting shouldn't be an issue.
Johnson's Paste Wax has been the universally recommended solution for
CI table tops for years. Other products such as Boe-shield and TopCote
have their fans, too.
Don't see why not.
See my website for other things to do with a Craftsman table saw.
Jeez, she is 30 years older and probably did not do a bunch of plastic
surgery. Born in 1938? How many 70 year old women are hot? Slather a
little makeup on and she doesn't look so bad. Not many people look
great in their mug shots, or drivers license for those of us who have
not been booked.
It really pays to see him/her live and in the flesh. Television and
magazine photo spreads mask lots of aging/ blemishes.
In 1974 I wrangled a track-side photo pass for the Canadian Grand Prix
at Mosport. Also in attendance was the Penthouse Pet-of-the-Year.
Oh-yesssssssssss. Her photo layout (yes, I no doubt bought that issue) was
flawless. And, in person she was just like the photo spread - except for
the freckles. 34 years later and I don't think I've seen that many freckles
in total on all the freckled people I've seen since. Being 24 they were
only a minor distraction. In fact, I don't think they'd be much of a
distraction even today!
With the photo software available today you can hide lots and lots of
wrinkles/blemishes. In fact, if Leon will post a portrait of hisself I
think I can make him look 30 years younger with just a couple of keystrokes!

When Roy Underhill was at my club a couple years ago he half jokingly said
that high def would kill his show. This because people would be able to see
how bad some of the stuff looked that he made in a hurry on The Woodwright's
Shop. ;~) I'm pretty sure his latest shows are high def and they are OK
with me.... I get the idea!

When I went to the luncheon with Norm Abram a few years back he had the
Butterfly Table with him... the summer before the show aired. The finish
left a lot to be desired and he told the group that he needed to work on his
finishing... I appreciated the candor and the issues he described. Later
when I saw the show air on TV the table looked just fine... I wonder what
high def would have shown up??
