I havent been using the new saw much due to cold weather the past month or so, but each time I start it up and about to cut, I noticed a small area, maybe the size of a dime, of what looks like rust on the surface of the saw a couple of inches left of the blade near the front edge of the table.
I didnt dwell on it too much, just took a bit of wd40 and it cleaned off.
But after the third time, I figured there has to be a leak above it somewhere because I made sure no water or liquid was near it after the second time.
I took out my ladder, took my 2 million candle power humongous flashlight(never knew why I bought it, just seemed like a good idea at the time), and shined it at the roof of the garage up around where the saw sits below.
I know it hasnt rained in a while, but figured, hey, maybe theres a wet spot and the wood lets the rain drip slowly. I dont know, but that was my first thought.
No leak, but finding the spot today on the saw really bugged me.
I was cutting dado's before and my wife came home for lunch, and told me get inside, its too cold to be working out there. I told her nonsense, I have a tiny heater and in the garage theres no wind(brutal wind chills today)
Then she said, stop being stubborn, even your nose is dripping, whats wrong with you!(not a question, more of a statement she was making)
Yep, my dripping nose in the cold weather was hitting the rust spot.
At least she solved that mystery.
