    Yes I agree. Use WD40 to clean after your anti rust treatment but you need something like Lanotec to protect it from moisture.

    Same thing happened to my SWARTS saw when I left dust on it. I take more care to keep it clean and give a quick spray with Lanotec. Silverglide is another option.

    I had a similar issue and rang Sam. He led me through adjusting it over the phone. So try that. He is super helpful.

    I should have explained that it is my dust extraction hood, made of mdf if you scroll up to post #141 you will see the picture of it there. I donít cover it up with anything else. I will try to find some Camellia oil, where would I purchase it from?
    It could well be that there has been saw dust on the slides that has caused the rust, I do cut green or near green timber from time to time and not turn the extraction on (naughty I know) or even dry timber would do it too. I guess it wouldnít take much?

    For this application, you don't actually need Camellia oil - any rust deterrent will do, as you won't have timber coming into contact with the deterrent there.

    I just happen to like Camellia oil because it won't cause issues if you get some on timber if it's on (say) a table saw surface.

    Available in a few places, probably the easiest is here: https://www.carbatec.com.au/handtool...l-240mm-bottle

    Does anyone know if this saw has been discontinued?

    I can't find one anywhere and swarts haven't responded to the question through their website contact form

    Timbecon used to have them but don't know whether they still do. Check their web-site

    They still have an eBay page but no saw on it at the moment, you could try sending a message via eBay.

    I was looking at these about 18 months ago at their 7hills warehouse, was told they were discontinuing them as it took to much time to set them up for sale (needed a lot of adjusting) and they were going to discontinue woodworking tools and concentrate on metal working machines. I didn't go ahead and buy one.
