I’m assuming the table is aluminum as it is on the current version of that model. In that case, some aluminum polish like Mothers or similar should clean and shine it up. What I don’t know is if that would leave any kind of deposits that could interfere with finish on a project.

Blade suggestions. I like Diablo blades for a lower cost, good quality. Something like the D1280X should work well and leave a good finish. For better blades, I’ve started using Everlast. They are definitely a big step up in quality. They are also a step up in price, but are able to be resharpened multiple times instead of just once or twice. The Everlast miter saw blades also have better tooth geometry for controlling the cut.

Yes, the table is aluminum. I’ve been thinking about polishes but a lot of them have silicone which I definitely don’t want getting on my wood. I was thinking about giving bar keepers friend a try with a soft brush.

I have some of that polish for metal made by Ryobi that you find at lowes or home depot but not sure if it has silicone or not. I would assume it doesn’t but what do I know.

I have been leaning towards the Diablo blade you mentioned. It seems to be the best one out there that is in my price range. Everlast will have to wait for now

Tried out some bar keepers friend and some steel wool and it worked pretty well but took some elbow grease.
