I apologize if this question should be posted elsewhere. But here are my questions and situation anyway. My wood shop is in an unattached garage…no heat, no AC, no insulation, drywall on the ceiling only but with exposed studs in the walls. I have an overhead garage door. Also, this is in southern Illinois, meaning temperatures range from -5 to 100+. We have extremely high humidity most of the spring, summer and fall.
How do I keep rust from rearing it’s ugly head on my table saw, jointer, band saw, and planer tables, not to mention, my blades and bits? Also, when I do spot rust forming, what’s the best way to rid myself of it?
Lastly, should I cover the tables, when not in use, with cardboard cut to size to prevent coffee mugs, soda and water bottles leaving rings? (I also use the tables, out of laziness, as a catch all or just a place to put my tools “for just a minute or two”.) Does the cardboard protect, or does it attract and trap moisture?
