I’ve heard of the kerosene and mineral spirits, but never heard of WD40. I would think that it might leave a residue that could get on the wood and possibly cause problems come time for finishing, or is this something that is just from the worrying side of me? Thanks for all the responses.

Something that was also mentioned was keeping metal parts away from the “rust monster”. What does everyone use. I’ve always been roped into buying some type of aerosol way spray (TopCote I think is what it is called) or using some type of oil for chisels. Is there a cheaper alternative than $15/can for keeping the table saw slick and free from rust?
