Default Rust protection test by John Heisz

John did a test comparing paste wax to water based poly for rust protection on metal tools and equipment. It's interesting that he says that the poly surface is at least as slick as a waxed surface:

Based on the article, I think it's on a par with paste wax (which gets scraped off too) in terms of fragility. He put the poly on but wiped it off wet making for a very thin layer. It clearly did better than paste wax when undisturbed. That is particularly good to know for storage or longer periods of disuse.

I love these kind of articles - some one actually tests it. You always hear lots of opinions but, to me at least, this sort of thing is gold.

I would think so. I'm going to try it out when I can't see my breath in the shop.
