Another good and easy way to keep tools from rusting, is to put a couple pieces of chalk in your tool box. The chalk will absorb any moisture in the air, and they won't rust. It works great for fishing tackleboxes too! Just toss a piece or two in, and keep fishing!
We have a bucket of used oil & sand mix that we shove all the tools into after using. the oil coats and the sand cleans and sharpens
To keep your tools rust free, rub a small amount of cheap hair conditioner on the metal. No more rust.
