If I notice a little rust on my equipment tables tops I give the area a light sanding with 400 grit and put a little oil on the table. I might have to touch things up about once every 5 years.

Johnsons paste wax. Make sure whatever version you get that it doesn't contain silicone. Silicone will negatively affect your finished pieces. WD40 IS NOT good to use as it dries out (W stands for water and D stands for dispersion). WD40 also contains silicone.

Mike, I like your idea!!

I did buy a dehumidifier for my shop and treated the tools with Top Cote.

I should be completely moved in a couple more weeks. Time to build some bows

Thanks for all the posts!! I'll post some pics soon. Have everything just sitting in shop right now.

wax and a cover-------and dehumidified--should be fine anywhere!
