Boeshield T-9 and Johnson’s paste wax. For the tools stored in drawers in my workbench (hand planes, chisels, etc.) I throw in a couple of bags of desiccant to retard moisture buildup (helps prevent rust).

Boeshield for rust removal then I hit my planes and cast iron table tops with Renaissance Wax since it isn’t silicone based to interfere with finishes. I keep an oily rag in my sharpening station that is saturated with Camelia oil from years of wiping down tools and always wipe down my hand tools at the end of the day with it.

I just ordered a bottle of Carmelia Oil and a six pack of Bull Frog rust blocker strips from Highland Woodworking. Found some rust specs on my planes when I reopened my shop this spring. Will post a Review after I receive and evaluate.
