Razor blade scraper, a cupped wire wheel on a drill, and some mineral spirits to clean up will make quick work of the top.

No cupped wire wheel, so I used a random orbital sander to get the worst of the rust off, wiped it with alcohol, and then applied two coats of Johnson’s paste wax. The top cleaned up beautifully, just in time for the motor to give out.
