This may sound like a dumb question; if it is, it wouldn’t be my first on LJ.
I’m building a simple cabinet for storing my 10” TS blades. I plan to make pull-out slides w/ short vertical dowels to make sure the blades don’t slide around. The slides will be 1/2” MDF, primed & painted w/ exterior latex paint. No special reason for my choice of MDF & latex paint; I just happen to have a lot of it sitting around.
My question is: Will the blades rust (or be otherwise harmed) if they sit on a latex-painted surface for long periods of time? I could add a coat of polyurethane on top of the paint, but I don’t want to go to the trouble if I don’t have to.
