  • Have I been robbed?

    Guy had an CL ad for this hydraulic lift table for 100 bucks and when I got there to look at it he said I had to take this big heavy metal thing on top or no deal.πŸ˜‰ Now I guess I'll have to restore it because I am too OCD to use something that looks like this. Seriously tho what type of 'finish' does Evaporust leave on a table like this? Is it best to EVap it and Scotchbright it? Just Scotchbrite on a test patch leaves bright and dark spots. Never used Evap before so what say yall experts? Its a 15 incher. I did pay 100 bucks tho, for both. But I did spend five bucks on gasoline to clean it up if that makes any difference.

      That β€œrust” doesn’t really look that bad in the photos. Personally before I gave it a dip I think I would try 00 or 000 steel wool and some gun oil like CLP and see what it comes out like.

          Very nice score!! You must have been good lately (Karma).. That spot where you scrubbed it looks pretty good. Should clean right up. Id use some WD40 or similar "Lub" along with the pad. JR

              I shudder to think the amount of money you must have spent on fuel to transport all that useless iron all the way back to your shop. How will you ever recover from such an expense.......πŸ˜‰

              When it comes to vintage brands known for quality, Troyke is one of the better ones. So.....yeah....you was robbed, you was, and just to add insult to injury let me be the first to congratulate you with a heartfelt You Suck! 😁

                    That little table in the OP, I don’t know. I have seen some welding tables built on a scissor type table that looked like it could be pretty useful.

                      They use lift tables to get 15 inch rotary tables on and off the mill. Yep, you got ripped off pretty bad on that deal. I'll give you scrap price for it, just so you can get some of your money back...

                        I feel so sorry for you, you were really taken !!!!

                        Evapo rust leaves a sort of dull etched finish. The surface rust doesn't look that bad. I usually clean stuff like that up with a soft wire brush first followed by 400 gt. sand paper and WD 40.
                        The Evapo rust may clean out the deeper pits if any.

                              Thanks for posting these pics, I think Evapo is the ticket to get into the pits and then a good scrubbing.
