Same way you clean up surface rust on any cast iron table such as table saw or jointer?
scrap it, or
sand it, or
mill it.
There are a ton of rust removal threads on LJ HERE:

Also a pile of “Delta 15 planer threads too.

Best Luck.

I use WD40 spray the surface let soak for 10 minutes then sand with 500 or 1000 grit sand paper, wipe off as much as possible, wipe over with rubbing alcohol, then spray a protective coating of “silicon free Dry Lube” wipe off excess and back to planing
