I’m about to pack it all up and move to Australia for a few years. For a variety of reasons, it’s not practical to take all of my tools with me. What does one need to do to store tools for an extended period of time? Assume that they’ll be in a storage unit or something similar. I’m looking to store:
Things with Cast Iron tops:
bandsaw, tablesaw, jointer, drill press
routers, surface planer, sliding compound miter saw, compressor and nail guns
I plan to take all of my hand tools with me, as well as my workbench if I can.
Do I need to wax everything? Grease it all down? what should I use?
Finally, any special tips for shipping the other tools overseas (container in a freighter)? I’d be shipping the usual assortment of hand planes, saws, chisels, wrenches, etc.
Thanks in advance.
