I have that same saw.

My kids have each left drinks on it (once). I had a friend call me at work once to ask if he could come over and use the radial arm saw to dog ear a bunch of cedar fence boards. I was at work and he is not exactly handy so I told him to wait til I got home and I would run the saw while he did the lifting. He said he wanted to drop off the lumber while I was away and I said OK. I came home from work and found that he had stacked the lumber on the table saw. I really didn’t think too much about it. Later when we were running the milling operation he picked up that last board and said “that’s a wild looking pattern on your table saw” The wet lumber had rusted the top in the pattern of the grain of the cedar board. It looked kinda like that fancy damascus steel.

Bottom line is it’s a tool. I try to keep it clean and waxed and I use steel wool and 1000 grit wet dry sandpaper on it every once in a while. I haven’t found a stain I couldn’t get out (yet)
