Re: how do I clean and polish a lathe bed


I have found that a degeaser, such as 'Jizer' or its equivalent, which is washed off with water can be very effective, once you have removed the heavier greasy deposits.
It is marketed in the UK and Europe, but there bound to be equally good equivalents worldwide.
After sanding or etching and before applying any paint, a wipe over with standard cellulose thinners, or isopropyl alcohol, ensures that there are no contaminants to spoil the paint finish.

Good luck with the project.
