    If the table doesn't come out just right I think I will ask the guy for my money back and return it, but not the lift. I hate getting screwed over!

          Yeah,

          I dont like to give advice when none was asked for ( my biggest complaint around some sites).

          But you did ask a question, so? Open season, yes

          I am no expert re: evaporust stuff.

          I have 5 gallon tanks of it for some items. I dont suggest it for everything. I dont suggest it for this table, just saying.

          Not even as a wash for the scrub pad. I would not do that... JR

          ""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?""

              The dial and hand wheel look exactly the same as my Yantai other than mine can be used vertically. Which has come in pretty handy.

                If if it cleans up okay, you kinda screw'd.
                You now need a larger mill or might be forced to buy a small HBM.

                  I think he should have given you ten dollars to take the heavy thing away. . You can remove the rust from the surface with oiled wire wool and elbow grease without worrying about damaging any critical tolerances. I would take it to bits to clean and relubricate it myself.

                    I would've said 'no deal'. Or more precisely, my back would have said it and insisted I pass on the message. That MF looks HEAVY! Exactly the reason it's on the table.

                      other than the back ache you might have gotten when loading and unloading it, I believe that you might be considered the robber rather than the robbee... nice score.

                        Evaporust is pretty expensive. Molasses gives the same results for much less if you can let it soak for about two weeks. Just somethin' to consider...

                          While molasses definitely works I find it much more prone to flash rusting than using evaporust. ER is expensive but it lasts a long time. Just keep putting stuff in the bucket until it doesn’t work anymore

                            "... to get 15 inch rotary tables on and off the mill."

                            Well, DUHH YES!

                            PS: I have a 10" RT with some rust that I need to clean up. And make a cart to allow me to get it on and off the mill table.

                              Dig a hole in the yard and drop it in it if you don't want it.
