I just bought a Ridgid jp0610 jointer on clearance, it was the display machine and it has some surface rust on the castiron top. I've been able to remove most of the rust with penetrating oil and a brass wire brush but I can't get to what is in the pores of the table. I'd like to beable to make it look like new if I can. I'm also looking for a way to protect all my castiron table tops from rusting because my shop is in my unheated garage.
Thanks in advance for your input.

I use automotive rubbing compound and a scotch brite under a ROS and then use paper towels to take the compound off again with the ROS and after that some automotive wax again with the ROS. This process gives you a clean smooth surface.

Evapo-rust (available at HF and I believe a couple of the auto parts chains). Goes a long way and is virtually effortless, and then wax. I've used it to remove rust from a lot of hand tools as well. Good stuff, at around $17.00/gal (concentrated, treats 300 lbs. of steel).
