I have used the Bull Frog emitter strips in the boxes that I store my hand planes and they seem to work well. I also wipe the planes with Camellia oil saturated in a cotton ball. Does anyone know if Camellia oil saturated cotton balls will work if just placed in a drawer of a wooden chest by its self? Or should I buy sheets of the Bull Frog emitter and cut them and put a piece in each drawer? I want to start stocking the Gerstner chests that I just got delivered.

I can’t see any way how a cotton ball soaked in camellia oil placed near tools would do anything. Oiling tools works by inhibiting the oxidation reaction that causes rust and you need a thin film wiped over the metal to do that. Don’t know anything about the emitter.

Broke down and ordered some Zerust squares.

Another option is to ask your local pharmacist fro the dessicant packs they get with their drugs. I get a baggie every week and I just throw some of the packets in the drawers with my tools.
