Rigid tablesaw outside
I have a Rigid TS3650 which is the best TS I have owned. But now I have a choice between keeping a vehicle in the garage or the TS.

So the TS is going on the Lanai. The Lanai has a roof and the walls are screened. This is Florida and it is always humid so anything left outside rusts. Covering items with plastic only seems to make it worse, by trapping moisture.

So any suggestions on practical ways to preserve saw and keep it usable?

Any comments, thoughts, ideas or wisecracks greatly appreciated. JIm

Coat any of the parts that can rust with something like WD-40 (just not the electrical components) and maybe bag it up but put in a desiccant in the bag.

Build more storage in the garage?
