My Lie-Nielsen scrapers (about the only Lie-Nielsen thing I can afford) came wrapped in what I originally thought was just some heavy tan wrapping paper. I noticed recently, when I actually read what was on the paper, that it is some sort of treated paper that helps protect the scraper contained within. Good thing I didn’t chuck it – my scrapers are still nice and shiny!
Are there any companies that sell rolls or sheets of this stuff? Being in Malaysia, and having an “exposed” shop (one wall has open grates for windows, no A/C), I’m concerned about my tools getting rusty. This paper would be handy for wrapping my saw blades, extra plane blades and maybe even taping to the soles of my planes.
I suppose I could make something (whether with paper or fabric)? If so, is there a standard oil I could use, or would I have to order something like T-9?
