I live in Western New York and humidity can get high here but all I do is just wipe down any bare steel tools with an old oily rag I’ve used while doing mechanic work. After a few times wiping them you end the rust problem. Of course you could oil them then wipe them down real good because you cannot actually rub all the oil off. Like my metal lathes and drill press table years of oil on them keeps them rust free and the surfaces don’t transfer oil to the wood unless I forget to wipe them after using oil on them. The more you use a bare steel tool the more oil gets into it just from your hands but that takes many years.
