Long Term Storage of Cast Iron

Recommended Posts

Cover it in oil and wrap everything up is how I handeled my cast iron when i moved. Mine sat in a storage unit for only 5 months though.

Glad your saw is still in great condition. Does this mean you have access to 220v now and are going to put it back to work?

Yes indeed! It is up and running.

All the spots for breakers were taken up so we had to add a small sub-panel but otherwise it was no big deal.

I had moved with my cross-cut sled and it still cuts true. I made a fold-up out-feed table for it akin to the one Dr. Zaius showed recently. So I'm ready to push some wood across it again...:)

I had been using my DeWalt DWE7490 and it's been a workhorse for me, but it sure is good to have my cabinet saw back.

Well I guess it was the both of us, but I drank the lion's share.

Thanks everyone! Now let's see if I can get back to work furniture making on a regular basis. I'm having a hard time these days keeping a steady flow of ideas rolling. I need to have a plan drawn up for a next project before the finish starts going on the current project or I end up having big gaps in my production.

LPS3 is perfect for that kind of work so I'd say you picked a product and used it exactly as they intended when they invented it. LPS1 and 2 may have helped, but nothing preserves as well as 3 for that kind of thing. Boeshield also works well and yes, it actually is used on airplanes. LPS3 is to some degree but it does collect a bit of dust. Boeshield hardens and protects.

I’m in the same boat!
