Default Dammittttt! RUST

Spent last night in the garage and the humidity got really bad. Just went out to the garage & ALL of my equipment has a layer of rust on it since last night. Bridgeport, Lathe, bandsaw, table saw, jointer, all are completely rusted on all ways & machined surfaces. I imagine there is other stuff too once I start looking.

I can see hours with scotchbrite & oil to save them. If you haven't checked your equipment, you should.

Yeah, I had that over the winter. My lathe is loaded up with a good layer of way oil, but my mill and drill need to be coated, and I don't know what to do with my steel work/welding table. Don't really want it coated with wd40 or something but it flash rusts...

I keep a pretty good eye on it because slight rust can happen without seeing it. This on the other hand looks like it was freshly spray painted overnight. Headed out during intermission to start scrubbing.

I've had good luck putting a couple of old ceiling fans in the barn. Keeps the air moving and temps equal.

I was out last night & pulled a gatorade out of the fridge. It was literally steaming like dry ice.

I keep the doors closed when there is drast temp changes. I was out in shop tonight and it was still 60 in there and dry. I turned the furnace on and brought it up to 72. It's still dry in there. But over the past few years I have gone out there to a wet shop. It sucks when that happens.

I use Bostik Top coat and then 100% carnuba wax on all the cast iron parts of table saw, lathe, drill press table, mortiser, jointer etc.

I clean and reapply once a year and it seems to have stopped the rust issue

A simple paste wax works wonders on machine surfaces. Another odd but effective option is crisco. Non toxic or dangerous, quick coat of brake clean removes it. Have to be careful not to load up machine ways with it thought, it can gum things up.

That's a good idea. Definitely worse on the cast iron parts. What sucks is my table saw and jointer are buried way back because I'm not using them right now. I see at least an hour to dig them out and rub them down. I got the lathe & bandsaw done during the last intermission. Started on the Bridgeport & it's terrible. It's crazy. I left a dust pan on the Bridgeport table last night & it was clean underneath.

you could always go start a fire in your woodstove when it gets really wet, usually fire drys things out.

The condensation in my garage drives me crazy, it looks like someone put a garden hose in my toolbox drawers in the mornings sometimes.

Cover all your machines with dustpans, problem solved.

Were you outside Tuesday night? The humidity and temperature change was amazing. This did not happen over time and I didn't notice it. It happened in a 24 hour period. The bad part is I didn't think about it and predict it. If I had, I could have fired up the furnace for the night. There is nothing covering the roof and I have sofit vents.

This is only the second time I have ever had this happen and this is the worst by far. Previously it was minor.

No wood stove. Natural gas furnace.
