I don't know that you will be able to keep them completely rust free down here.  I never have with mine.  Some hand tools I keep in the house even get a little rusty.

If its climate controlled you should be in pretty good shape.

I would still coat them with wax beforehand.

I appreciate all the answers. I've got Boeshield, paste wax, wax paper, grease and plywood. That should take care of it!

I'm not so sure I would use all of them at the same time. For example, on a table saw top I would go with the Boeshield, wax paper, and plywood. I don't think paste wax/grease on top Boeshield is going to work, but I may be wrong. The Boeshield "dries to a waxy waterproof coating" so adding wax may not be necessary. The wax paper and plywood will also help in keeping the moisture out. Good luck and welcome to Florida.

I also have a shop/shed with a mini-split unit in it and have cast iron tools inside. What I do when I go on vacation is to spray the tops (jointer tables & fence/table saw top/band saw table/DP column & chuck) with Boeshield T-9 or CorrosionX  and cover it with cardboard or plywood. I learned this trick after reading it on a forum somewhere. Apparently the cardboard/plywood keeps the moisture off the cast iron top. For now, it has worked for me quite well. I'm sure there are other methods that are also effective.

I understand the error in it not computing. Laugh

We prefer to vacation outside of Florida. How many times can we go to the beach on Siesta Key, Disney, or Universal.  Sleep 
We prefer to go to Alaska, Yellowstone, Yosemite, Colorado skiing, Colonial Williamsburg, etc. Much more to see than animated things, sand, and salt water.  Yes Wink

The grass is ALWAYS greener on the other side of the fence.

Spoken by a guy on this side of the fence . . . to a guy on that side of the fence.

Don’t get too close to the ocean, it WILL rust your tools and surprisingly fast.
