Rusting tools.

Just a quick note here.
I worked in the shop just a bit last night. Some of my tools have been rusting. The tables on the band saw, as well as both drill press had much surface rust, apparently due to the cold weather, so I spent some time cleaning those up last night. I used a scotch bright pad on a die grinder for the majority of the rust and finished up by hand and coated everything with a very thin layer of machine oil.

Ever since I fired up the heater the rusting seems to have stopped. There are a few more tools yet to be cleaned.

I also spent some time looking at and thinking about the boat. I'll be laid off after the weekend and will have much time on my hands.
