My favorite rust preventative/ general use lubricant has been discontinued for a while now ;_;
I'm still searching for a product that beats it. Now I either suffer rusty tools or tools that grow fur from the dust sticking to the oil.
What do you use? .
I just use INOX MX3. You Americunts might not be able to get it tho.
I use gun oil. More specifically this gun oil.
Apply to a rage/cheesecloth and wipe it down after its clean. No dust buildup, and no greasy feel like WD40
As a noob I used wd40.
I've now upgraded to 3inOne oil, it lasts longer, and it creeps into gaps. Also cheap. I should probably upgrade, some wood glue created rust spots on my square.
Some people swear by beeswax, never tried it myself.
Old tools rust easily, but many are too beautifully made to replace. The old style iron and steel isn't affordable anymore. Also wood planes.
I regularly wipe down with 3 in one oil, but also I keep a 500g bag of silica gel in my tool box. Silica gel is cheap (amazon/ebay) and reusable and keeps the all the tools happy dry.
I dunno about these teflon/ptfe lubricant sprays, can they rub off onto wood?

if the pic is what you speak of, then it may not be discontinued. DuPont sold the same product in two different cans.
The Teflon Multi-Use lube is/was also sold in a yellow can, marked as DuPont Teflon Chain Saver. It's the exact same stuff in both cans. The Multi-Use was sold in retail stores for the little people, and the Chain Saver was sold through industrial outlets.
