I've noticed that I'm getting rust on some of the tools in my toolbox. I assume this is the result of the larger temperature and humidity swings in the garage due to the lack of HVAC. Beyond adding HVAC, which I don't plan to do, what can I do to prevent rust? Is it just being diligent about wiping down tools with a silicon or oil cloth? Dehumidifiers?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
You are going to need to oil them up. Lie-Nelison recommends and sells jojoba oil. I know guys who have used wd-40.
