 Hand Tool Treatment

To start out with I keep my hand tools in an open barn. Whatever the humidity is outside, it's the same inside.

My question is... What's the best rust preventive you all use? Is there some magical oil that will adhere to metal better than XYZ?

Marvel Mystery Oil has always worked for my tools.

 Hand Tool Treatment

Some guys here on the Gulf Coast where the air is salty were telling me they use a product made by AmsOil fr keeping aluminum boat motors fresh looking. Haven't seen it myself, but AmsOil in general is good stuff.

I use whatever is on hand to spray my tools. PB Blaster I feel is a bunch of hype. WD-40 which gets is name sake from "water displacing formula number 40" is as good as any IMHO.

 Hand Tool Treatment

something that has worked for me in the past is to fill an old 5 gallon plastic bucket 3/4 full with sand and pour a couple of quarts of motor oil in and stir it up. when you finish with a tool or just before storing dip it up and down in the sand. It will get cleaned and oiled at the same time. keep the sand bucket under cover so it will not fill up with water and cause a mess. As for the wooden handles I sand, stain, and clear coat every so often. Lowes here has a great selectionl of wooden handles real cheap that is some time the way to go. If I paint it is with RustOlem (SP)

I don't have the website info. handy, but look up something called "Rust Reaper" on Google.

I've never seen anything that works like it does.

Best of luck.

Murf might you be thinking of Rust Mort? It's a chemical that changes rust to a primer used in automotive applications like in door and quarter panels.

A VERY good and cost effective steel preservative for shovels, picks, axes, etc. is to coat the steel with Lineseed oil after you have cleaned them up and they have dried. Keeps them looking like new until the next time you need them.

 Hand Tool Treatment

Here in the Great Pacific NorthWet, I do what SG does, but with a bit different twist. I just leave the tools in the oil treated sand in a bucket in the shop all year round.

Works great!

 Hand Tool Treatment

I should have made myself a little clearer from the start. When I said hand tools, I was talking about sockets, wrenches and such. Sorry about that.

Maybe just an old oily rag would work as good as anything? I'm just looking for something that has some staying power.

Thanks guys
Billy

 Hand Tool Treatment

As I'm reading the replies I couldn't help but chuckle to myself that once upon a time I used to take care of my tools. I mean, I've been a contractor for the past 8 years. I used to buy the top-of-the-line stuff. Then I realized that theives like the same high-quality stuff too! Whodathunk? So after having about $30,000-$40,000 in tools stolen I buy the cheapest (but most reliable) stuff I can. I found theives won't steal Ryobi stuff or Black and Decker or even some Craftsman. So guess what I buy?

And what's funnier if I were to show up on a job where the tools looked good, they'd think I never used them. Perception is everything?

Recently I had a young contractor tell me that I should not have a nice looking truck with new-looking (they're 4 years old) signage on it because it looks like I went out and just started the biz recently and nobody will trust me! (His truck is 10 years old and beat up so maybe he's jealous??)
