I read this somewhere and it does work very well.
Sprinkle you saw,jointer,drill press or bandsaw top with pure talc(NOT talcum powder) Talc repells moisture while talcum has cornstarch in it and absorbs moisture(think diapers and babies)
I’ve been doing this for a long time and it really works.You can buy it at the drugstore.

I wax these too Jim but wax wears off at times. This is just an added protection.

Don’t get talc or corn starch on drive belts but, especially, avoid even a small spill on the floor where you need sure footing.
