Corrosion resistance


Recommended Posts

Tools: store them clean and dry; oil or wax them as part of maintenance..

In very damp areas some people will linseed oil the parts of their hammers that don't come into contact with hot metal---usually as a side effect of soaking the eye in linseed oil to keep the handle tight.

If very dry areas like where I am I don't deed to do anything to my tools unless they get caught in a rare rainstorm and then wipe them off and oil them.

For ornamental work: Paint or even use non-corroding alloys like stainless
