The Bottom Line

Boeshield's Rust Free Rust and Stain Remover is designed to remove rust, fingerprints and other stains from cast iron, steel, stainless, fiberglass, chrome, tile, porcelain, vinyl and cloth. While it has been used on boats for years, it also does a very nice job removing rust spots from cast iron and steel table saw, band saw and jointer tables.

The product does a very nice job removing light rust and stains, and for more difficult rust and stain removal tasks, can be used with a non-abrasive scouring pad. It should be used in well-ventilated areas, though, as the phosphoric acid scent is quite strong.

Guide Review - Boeshield Rust Free Rust & Stain Remover

Because I live and work in a humid environment, I'm constantly fighting rust spots on my table saw and band saw tables. I've been using non-silicone car waxes to protect the tables for years, but have been hard-pressed to find products that would effectively remove minor rust spots from the tables without a lot of scrubbing.

I recently tried Boeshield's Rust Free on my tools and was pleasantly surprised. Not that I had any real huge rust problems, but I did have a few problematic areas that I wanted to clean up, and Rust Free handled these areas with relative ease. I simply sprayed on Rust Free and waited 60 seconds before wiping it off with a cotton cloth. It took a few applications for a couple of spots, but I was very happy with the results.

After cleaning your tools using Rust Free, Boeshield recommends an application of another product, their Boeshield T-9 protectant, which will be covered in an upcoming review.
