I've been spraying any bare metal susceptible to rust.



Smells like army

If you've only got a little surface rust I would not use scotchbrite on my machines. Grab a rag, soak it in way oil and start scrubbin. You may be amazed how easily it(rust) comes off. Be careful to NOT get/leave any oxide on the ways of the machine(s).
I've walked into the shop before and had the "Oh what the fukc !!!" moment. As you are probably more than well aware now if it's been cool and then the temp suddenly rises along with the humidity large chunks of cast iron will sweat profusely.
P.S. get real way oil and don't sub. engine oil either. Something about engine oil encapsulating water and letting it set on the machine surface under a layer of oil
Good luck with your cleanup. It sucks, I know.
As I said before, I'm using way oil. A rag will not do it, it needs the extra umph from the scotchbrite. I should have taken pics, this is way worse than a little brown here and there. I've had machines in my garage for the past 15 or so years, same address, same everything, with some mild surface rust from time to time but this is the first time it has attached to EVERYTHING.

I hate cosmoline. And I can't even imagine putting cosmoline on everything in my garage. FWIW, we have customers who have told us if we ever ship with cosmoline on our products again, it will be the last time they will buy from us.

Hehehe, that stuff does cling. My mill came from my grandpa's garage after he passed away. He was a bit lazy and never cleaned all the cosmoline off it. It was in his garage for 25 years or so, and all the non-work surfaces were still completely covered with it.

I'm glad I buy my tools pre-rusted...

Oh, and I'm still wondering what a guy who lives in his parent's basement is doing with Crisco....
