I just got a Delta TS and they want me to clean the protective oil off the top with kerosene. They specifically say not to use paint thinner, gasoline, or acetone. Any idea why? It would cost me almost 20.00 to get a couple ounces of kerosene because I would have to buy a kerosene container also. There must be something else that would be safe and easier to get.
Someone suggested oven cleaner to me, but I am thinking of just wiping the majority off and leaving a film to protect it. Bad idea?
If I clean it off, what would you suggest to protect it. I am thinking of using wood polishing wax or a Teflon spray.
