Re: Storage of Lathe

It has to be sealed all around, otherwise the condensation everynight will rust it where you cannot see.....every little crack and crevace....


Light stuff where you can't get to and haevy sticky suff where you can.

Keep checking it and spraying it.

Subject: [southbendlathe] Storage of Lathe

Just as I was getting going cleaning and rebuilding a Heavy 10 Toolroom lathe on an under drive cabinet, we need to move.  Just to the next town, but a smaller house yet plenty of room to build a bigger shop!!!

Need to store the lathe for maybe a year and the only room I have without tripping over it is outside.

It is partially disassembled, headstock, tailstock, apron all off of it.

Can I pretty safely just soak it with WD- 40 or LPS or something like that and keep it covered with a tarp? I could build a lean-to type thing on the side of a shed if that would help.

Thanks for any advice.
