Rust

Surface rust on machinery can be a real problem in the small workshop.

There are a number of options such as using a heater that operates below roughly 5°C to stop machinery getting cold and condensation forming on it.

Another option that I have just tried is to use a calcium chloride based trap to reduce humidity and so reduce the chance of condensation by drying the worshop out.


I thought my workshop was very dry, but just to be sure I have put one of the commercial Calcium Chloride Moisture Traps on a shelf to see what I can catch.

I will update this note in a week or so and let you know how much water has been collected. More details on this product can be found here: http://kontrolukltd.com. The pack with two sachets of calcium chloride that will collect a total of 2 litres of water cost me 2.99 in a local hardware store.
