Winter Storage
 
This summer I moved my workshop from the basement of my house to an unheated detached garage. I'm up in Canada, and since it has started to get a little colder at night with the winter coming, I have noticed that my table saw (cast iron top) has gotten a very light amount of surface rust on some spots. I'm assuming this is from the condensation. Is there anything I can do to protect my larger stationary power tools from damage over the winter? I was thinking that maybe a thin coat of grease might do the trick. The garage isn't heated yet so they likely won't get alot of use this winter. Thanks.

Do not use grease, it will stain the wood. Use a good coat or two of car wax. It also makes the saw much easier to use.

Yes, paste wax. I forgot there was any other kind. :huh:
