First wipe down dirt shows on the paper towels. Lots of old spider webs. Used elbow grease, rubber gloves and spray cleaner to start and quickly changed to a cleaner in hot water (sink) with the scrubbing sponge, had to change the water for fresh frequently.
The table (below) in the sunshine the next day after a light sanding and a polishing with clear wax. The dark areas on the legs are clean wood with no paint. The bare/worn off paint area is just as found, no paint was removed, just smoothed a bit.
Below is the cleaned and waxed table top from above, showing wear and marks.
Below are some pictures of the grime, cleaning and small repairs.
Repairs on the 'stop' guides.

Finished table cleaned and waxed.
I went back to this table because it is authentic vintage.
