8 hour turnaround last night, to pick up my 2nd high speed table (had one about 6 years ago). Waiting for some muscle to help unload but can't wait to get it all ripped apart and cleaned and waxed and LED'd.

Legs are too rusty to save, ordered new ones on marco and im using the old ones for "metal cleaning practice"

Backglass is starting to peel/flake - ordered a can of triple thick clear to try to fix. Will probably get a CPR repro.

....repeat that?
.....He got away.

Quoted from Mathazar:

Evaporust does wonders. Seal up a PVC pipe from Home Depot, put the legs in, pour in a gallon or so of Evaporust, and let it sit overnight. Rust will be gone and legs will be ready for polishing/painting/sealing.

I am literally doing that now but unfortunately, the pitting is so deep they aren't ever going to look nice without paint.

Its not a huge deal though marco sells sets of 4 for the price of two gallons of evapo rust and I need to order silverjets anyway (I am never bummed to get a game that doesnt use magnets )

Quoted from bluespin:

Evaporust is only $16.15 per gallon on Amazon and has free shipping. If you do use Evaporust on legs, spray them afterwards with a $6 can of clear from the home improvement store, or wax them. That will prevent the rust from returning.

Thanks. I will definitely need to setup an evap I rust station in my garage for my next project. I was thinking about a way to save chemicals by vac-u-forming soaking trays but then id have to get a vacuum table too but that sounds cool too .

I used the evaporust kitchen sink method and got the fronts and where the table butts up on the backs cleaned with 1000 grit wet cobalt sandpaper.

After cleaning metal i like to use never dull as a rust stopper. I give it a thurough coat barely buff it, then come back a day later and buff the white residue off.

Table was sold in auction as not working, 3xAAA batteries and she's playing again. Now I have to figure out how to one-man it up my 4 garage steps into the house and I can start cleaning.

I also had a not-fun first this week and learned about not setting tempered glass on cement. Even if you think you can do it very very carefully, don't do it. Fortunately it was from a thrashed empty cabinet i bought, not the HS.

Quoted from ThatOneDude:

Just as an aside, a good powder coating after cleanup could save those legs. I've got a couple of sets that I'll likely farm off to a local in the near future.

How much does a good powder coating cost?

Quoted from dirkdiggler:

Our local go to guys (Arkadium) charge $250 cdn for legs, rails and lockdown bar or $150 for just legs

Thanks! I was trying to figure out if powder coating cost more than buying new legs, sounds like it does.
