    Could you recommend a brand and a source? Searching for "exhaust pipe cleaner" brings up a lot of different results.

    If the acid solution gets down into the mating surfaces between top and wings, or up into crevices on the miter slot, it will cause more serious corrosion. Same if it gets in between the front or back rail/screws, or runs off onto the underside of the table/wings. Anything acidic on cast iron needs to be thoroughly rinsed, and/or passivated (neutralized with baking soda/etc), or rust will redevelop very quickly. For your saw top, you may want to use metal polish. It does have oxalic acid in it, but in a thick liquid form is easier to control and remove.
