    Its started to show up, first 12 boxes are here. The 80-20 will ship out on August 14th. I'm planning on starting a new thread for my build once everything gets here & show the progress of the router build as well as my vacuum table build along with prices so in the future if someone want to build a vacuum table like mine they will have a parts list.New CNC Router Parts 48x96 Router build coming soon-31442-jpg

I use slip-it (similar to T9) to treat my steel parts and have to re-apply every few months...especially during the humid months .... like now. I'm sure it's mostly visual but I hate to see rust.
    I called CNC Router Parts about coating the exposed steel & they reccomend spraying the steel with WD-40. Has anyone else used WD-40 if whatever I use is going to need re-applied every month or so I'd like to use something that is readily available.

    Thanks

    I use the same thing as I did for my table saw, which is Boeshield T-9. I went to my local Woodcraft and purchased the set, which includes the T-9, Rust Free, and Bit Cleaner, I also noticed the T-9 came in a little 4 oz tube (not spray) for “bike chain” lubrication so I bought that to make it less messy than the spray to just put it straight on the rails. I also bought a plastic bristle brush from the hardware store where the brass bristle brushes are in paint to help apply the lubrications to the teeth of the rack pieces. Seems to be working pretty well so far.

    Thanks Dave I was looking around locally & found Rust Oleum Rust Inhibitor that comes in a spray can and Evapo Rust in a spraybottle, at Home Depot. Has anyone tried these?

    I've always use TopCoat on my table saw and other tools, and it works great for preventing rust. If you have a local Woodcraft or Rockler, they usually carry it.
    Looks like they've change the name to GlideCoat.

    We are in a very rural area, we are about 15 miles from the closest Home Depot & about 30 miles from Lowes. I'll look & see if I can find a Woodcraft or Rockler around the Pittsburgh area

    Easier to just order from Amazon, then.

    You could always paint the steel parts, couldn't you?

    I haven't started to build yet but from what I can see the only steel pieces are the rack & pinion, linear rails & gussets & I'm 95% sure the gussets are painted / powder coated so the only thing left are the rack & pinion & linear rails and I'm pretty sure I don't want to paint those.

    Thanks
