I've just got hold of a table saw it's fairly good condition apart from the aluminium table top, The paint has started to flake in places and there is a white chalky substance in these places what would be the best way to get nice and smooth again?

The chalky bits will be corrosion. Nothing you can really doing about it. Use a scotchbrite and some WD40 to clean up and then just use it.

Glad to hear it. Pitting and dings don't really affect a table saw in the same way they wood on other tools. Flatness and smoothness is more important.
