Hi Fellow Lumberjocks,
I need a bit of help and this place has tons of smart and ingenious people =).
Here’s my question: Fighting rust is always on the top of my mind when it comes to preserving the investments I have in my hand planes, chisels, and other expensive woodworking toys. I’ve built a tool cabinet to enclose them and regularly use T9, furniture paste wax, Eva Dry silica gel dehumidiers, zerust ,and anti rust tool drawer liners. All these things require regular maintenance and are not always effective, so I’m considering Dri Rod or Golden Rod used in gun safes as I’ve heard and read great reviews about this product.
My only concern is that I don’t like introducing a heat source to my wooden tool cabinet. The idea of a fire around rounds sounds like an accident waiting to happen. I haven’t seen any reviews about how hot the rod actually gets, but people say that it is too hot to touch. I can’t imagine it getting too hot however because I read that the device comes with plastic mounting brackets.
Anyone have experience with these devices in use with woodworking tool cabinets?
Thank you and much appreciated.
