I think you may be surprised how easy it is it to use electrolysis to de rust metal. You lathe can look like new.
Do a search on google for detials.. , get a rubbermaid tub, some water with washing sodea a battery charger a piece of angle or stainless steel to act as the anode and hook it up.
It really works...

found out that scotchbrite 400 grit is perfect--lathe ( at least cross table and milling head look new)--lathe bed is next
using baking soda as blasting media for heavy rust on some of the threads used to attach the table to the bed
