I’ve put this off long enough. In this video we tackle my rusty Shopsmith 4” jointer and bring it back to life. Using the Ol’ tried-and-true WD-40 and Scotch-Brite® method I’ll get this down to bare metal and in our mid-week follow-up episode of “STUMPED? Q&A” we’ll answer your questions, comments, and cheap-shots, including my crazy polyurethane cast iron treatment.

Also, for an excellent video on attacking and preventing rust, take a look at this recent video from Nick Engler: and sub him while you at it! He knows more about woodworking and even Shopsmith woodworking than most people I know.
