    Did it remove the glue stains or just prevent new ones?

    Yes, I was able to get them removed about 95%. There was a "ghost" mark remaining, but subsequent cleanings diminished them too.

    Re: Saw Table Discoloration

    I think all table saws should come with a factory installed beer can ring mark. Then the mystery of when it's going to happen will be over. Did you buy the saw to worship, or to work? When I taught school, principal came in to do an observation. She sat a coffee cup on TS. One student got trash can, and another told her not to ever set a drink on our TS again. That really firmed up my relationship with her. Yeah, right!!

    Falls under the 'stuff happens category. Battle scars.
    I once set a cold can of Mountain Dew on the table of my Unisaw; was left with a permanent ring that did not come out no matter what I did to eliminate it. Got it smooth and shiny but with a ring to remind me of my mistake.

    Yeah, I'm over it. Maybe with time I'll be able to have the same nonchalant attitude about my expensive tools that others have.

    I cant imagine paying $101 for a can of spray... I dont care how good it is. Please tell me this price was a misprint.

    Re: Saw Table Discoloration

    It's hard to say whether it's a misprint, but you can certainly buy it cheaper!

    Re: Saw Table Discoloration

    That is for a case of 12 cans.

    Here is a single can and it has more info.

    Sorry about that. I did buy a case of CRC 3-36 a few years ago and I just pulled up the link for that instead of for a single can when I posted.

    Re: Saw Table Discoloration

    Not sure how you even found that it was for a case!! I looked more than once to see what the count was but never saw anything. My eyes must be failing me. Thanks Mike.

    Re: Saw Table Discoloration

    My brother-in-law used to put soda cans or drink glasses on my previous table saws causing discoloration. It told him that if he ever did that with with my new Sawstop that I'd be looking for something to remove blood stains too - his! While removing surface rust from a table saw is not difficult; I used a 5" random orbit sander to return both of my table saw tops back to near-pristine condition before selling them. But getting out stains can be a lot more difficult. My old contractors saw had little, if any rust, but it had some very dark stains that were resistant even persistent sanding.

    There are several products that are pretty good at protecting metals in your shop. I like BoeShield. It is protects against rust and it has a waxy base. Depending on how much you apply, it can leave a waxy coating on the metal surface. It works pretty good on al of the tools that I have applied it to.
