have any of you that live in real humid areas painted the top of your saws , jointers? i was reading an old book i have (copy right 1953) and it says to do this to protect from rust. right now i use linseed oil and wrap the top with plastic wrap when it is not in use and i think the painting is a better option for me. this saw lives under a car post so if wi get a driving rain it will get wet. it is a 1938 turner walker 745 tilt top, it's main use is rip small sized wood (1x8 is the largest) and some hobby use. and please don't mention bioshield as for i really would not want to use it for this saw. but it i could just use a "rustolum" paint and just touck it up as needed that would be fine with me as the oil and wraping and them wiping really takes some time and is becomeing a big PITA
