    WE have just passed through quite a drought with less rain in the future for this year that has helped with rust this last winter. All the best for yours,constant vigilance pays.

    I also use wax including the morse tapers but I give the tapers a quick clean with rubbing alcohol before use, that strips the wax easily.

    A good friend used WD40 all the time on his wood lathe etc,never a slip on the rail locking and he turned massive bowls and platters . His machines looked like new.

    Not sure about availability there (or elsewhere), but her in the Colonies, we have a product called WD-40. Thin spray oil. (Don't cook with it, please.) Tools that are going into cold storage for me get lightly sprayed and put in a plastic tote. When it's time to use, a simple quick wipe down and ready.
    (And maybe spray canola cooking oil would work too, but I would save that for cooking.)
