Unless you have salt spray under your workbench or a perpetually humid garage, it will take a looooong time for rust to compromise 1/8" steel in any meaningful way.

Also, paints like to burn when they get hot.

Good points. Fair enough, no coatings.

You can clean it with a Scotch Brite pad and some WD40. Wipe it off with some paper towels and you should be good. I like WD40 as it discourages rust but won't prevent it, it's easy to apply and remove, it doesn't leave an oily residue, and it's available almost anywhere.

I have a JMR fab table top- 3/8" thick 2x4'. I like the slots that you can use those fixturing sets for.

Dyco Ventures builds workbenches and they use 11-gauge stainless steel for the tops. www.dycoventures.com
