Allen pointed out the burn marks on my projects and it reminded me to get the cleaning set I had my eye on. I've had the same blade in my table for five months now, and just now had the opportunity to clean it. And while I had it out, it also occured to me to put some wax on it - something I knew people did to bandsaw blades, but for some reason didn't connect it to anything else.
Any other real basic things that I may have missed in the realm of living my blades? Picking up everything I know third-person, I think there's more basic stuff like this that would help me out.
Rust has also taken a hold of my drill press, and I should have addressed that when I bought it. But being summer, I put it off. Steel wool, followed by some T-9 an some wax put me right? It's on the column and the spindle and chuck. My TS is an aluminum top, but I was considering waxing it along with my router table.
