« Part 23: Lets compare and review a Wally331 and LN back saw Part 24 of Around the Shop series no next part

Shop was getting cluttered with planes and keeping them all rust free was taking to much time. Time to move them.

That’s the part of the room that pays for the rest Terry.

Don, could you tell me your theory on preventing rust? I’m in Boston and my shop is in my attached barn. From time to time I find rust forming on a plane, chisel or tool top. The tops aren’t an issue because I can just scour them a bit and apply some wax or T9.

Do you feel that simply encasing them does a good job of protecting them? I can’t be sure if the inflicted tools were left out or if that happened while in a drawer.

I’d think the the humidity would still find its way in. I’ve seen various solutions marketed but I’ve yet to do anything.

Let me guess: Now you have room in the shop for more planes? :-)

Nice layouts, Don. Those tools are lucky you found them.

Don, I think that you might just have a slight addiction to planes. Wonderful displays, showcasing your
great selection. Thank you for sharing.

No Smitty, that’s not the plan, but then…......

Todd, my shop is unheated, so raining weather it can get bad. The planes in the house don’t have an issue. In my shop I just try to keep them oiled, waxed and clean. Sawdust is a problem. It either has moister in it, or it attracts it. If it sits on the metal, it causes rust. My users are not as much of a problem, because I keep them cleaned and oiled.

Oh! Somehow I missed that you had relocated them. I thought you had simply built the cabinet. I gotcha.

Dude. That’s an awful lot of planes! Are they all tuned?

Don, don’t look now but there is a strange man taking pictures of the back of your display! Can’t be too careful out there with that museum of yours. Great collection.
