It seems like there is a ton of different paste wax's and other things that can be used to rust prevention, and it loos like that what works for some doesn't mean that it will work for others. Y'all have giving me a bunch of options to choose from and a great place for me to start my rust prevention adventure.

Thanks

I was talking to Stick last night, on the phone. This topic came up in reference to construction. Out of curiosity I checked the current humidity on the weather 'site...it was 97%...
It's 84% at the moment Last night there was a 1/2 deg difference between the actual temperature and the dew point. No ^&^%$%$#^&(! wonder everything is either rusty or covered with algae.

Boeshield does protect well, but it is pretty sticky. Bostik’s GlideCote is much better for tools’ work surfaces.

I use Trewax. It's not as oily as Johnson's and seems to be harder and last longer. Available at my local Ace hardware.

I am glad that alot of people are chiming in and sharing there valuable knowledge on things that have worked or not worked for them in the rust prevention battle.

Just a little backstory on my journey in the rust prevention or lack there of.

I started this topic because as a kid growing up in Florida working for my dads construction company we never had to deal with rust on out job site tools but it almost seemed like my dad was fighting a never ending battle in his open air pole barn style workshop. When I started getting into wood working living in Texas I could not afford really good shop style tools and most were the small portable type that would be more home on a jobsite rather then a shop. I never really had to worry about rust on these tools because most of them came with stamped tables and not cast iron. After the military moved me to California I started expanding my tools from jobsite tools to more of a stationary shop tool. I started noticing a slight coloration change to by saw top caused by surface rust but it was kept mostly at bay because of the frequent use. We just recently moved back to Florida in the last year and my table saw was in storage both in California and Florida. When I finally got it out of storage where was a considerable amount of surface rust on the top. I know that the weather has alot to do with the amount of rust that we all have to deal with and my experience should not be near what my fathers was because I do not store my tools in an open air pole barn style workshop.

I now have a several tools that have cast iron table tops and I am just starting to figure out what will work best for me. I am currently using Johnson's paste wax on the top of my tools surfaces.

As previously mentioned, Johnson’s paste wax does contain silicones, which are known to transfer to and interfere with wood finishing efforts.

A better product is Howard’s Furniture Polish(wax), but the Glide Cote is easy and wonderfully effective.

according to J&J their paste wax doesn't contain silicone...
and it's the aggressively buffed out Carnauba wax that does the work...
the more the buffing the harder the film the better it works...

Hey Stick, thanks for the clarification! That’s good news.
