Rust prevention on what? When not woodworking, I'm working on vehicles and use Fluid Film to prevent rust. On tools or machinery, WD-40.

I use the Glide Cote and keep 2 containers of Damp Rid in the shop. Not sure the latter works all that well but they do fill up with water.

Last year when I needed to use my table saw in the spring. It had a small area of surface rust in it, I could not figure out where it cane from. I finally figured it out, there was slight crack along the edge of the roll up garage door. Snow had blown in the crack and landed on the table saw. Yes the table saw was covered but with the wind we have in Wyoming, if you have the slightest crack, snow will get in there. I do use Johnson Paste Wax but I must have not it completely covered the table.

Ha! Stick, where did you come up with this?

For years, I've read accounts of WD as a rust preventative, yet have personally observed the top of every WD-40 can rust, I've applied it to iron and seen that the object not only rusted but seemed to do so faster than I expected. I will say say that that rust has been light surface rust that seems to self-arrest.

same as you... VOE..
WD becomes Hygroscopic right after it dries... in it's liquid state it displaces water...
another thing I've found, WD is a dirt magnet...

think about it, the WD cans are painted too...
and I've made a lot of money as in bunches of, cleaning up after WD users...

self healing metals are either coated w/ or contain Aluminum oxide and/or chromium oxide

spray/soak the inside of a motor's distributor cap...
w/o letting the WD dry or wiping away any access put the cap back on and start the motor...
later you'll wonder why the cap cracked or came off of the distributor...
spring hooked caps'll jump and flash..

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Paste wax works but only if applied regularly but it is not very water resistant on cast iron. The Boeshield turned my cast Iron a darker color. The WD 40 method may work for some but WD 40 is wet when sprayed but evaporates and leaves behind a stickly mess. WD 40 will gum up bearings and cause them to fail. WD 40 used for its intented purpose is to displace water and penetration for rusty bolts. If you like WD 40 then use it but I would not use it on a bet as a rust preventer.

The TopSaver removes rust you may get from your fingerprints but really prevents rust from forming in my shop. I can buy or use anything but I choose TopSaver because it works. It does not transfer to wood so there are no finishing issues. I use it on every tool in my shop to remove and/or prevent rust.

Apply paste wax with a clean cloth and rubbing in a circular motion. If you use water to make sure that the surface is dry before you polish.
