      Thanks Jack!

      Yesterday I took the 7 foot table rails to my buddies machine shop to clean them up on his Colchester lathe. He bored the ends so we could use the center tail stock to hold the ends. There is some pitting and a little wear on the top edge but very little. Once in the chuck I used 80x sanding belt, then emery cloth, cleaned the worst off with a rag, then brake cleaner, then hit it with the burgundy Scotch pad. All in under an hour. Also coated them in Boeshield right on the lathe. Have been soaking the head rails with rust buster to loosen the 2" hollow rails so they can be cleaned up on the lathe too.
