The Bottom Line

For anyone who has cast iron table saw, band saw, jointer or other saw tables, rust and corrosion can be a problem. For those who live in overly humid environments, it can be almost overwhelming.

Shortly after Boeing completed development on a solution designed to protect aircraft parts, someone discovered that the solution worked great to protect other metal surfaces from rust and corrosion, including saw table tops, hand tools, etc.

Boeshield T-9 can be applied with a thin layer for day-to-day protection or lubrication, or with a heavy layer for storage protection. An excellent choice for rust protection.

Pros

  • Provides rust protection and lubrication for saw tables
  • Contains no silicone or teflon, so Boeshield T-9 will not pick up on wood
  • Can be used for day-to-day use or long-term storage protection

Cons

  • Spray nozzle on can is a little difficult to control level of spray
  • A bit pricey, but the protection seems worth the price

  • Also usable for marine applications, bicycle and automotive parts, garden tools and more.
  • Nozzle is designed to be depressed lightly for a thin spray or fully-depressed for a heavier spray.
  • Since Boeshield T-9 contains no silicone or teflon, it will not pick up on wood, which could cause damage to wood finishes.

Guide Review - Boeshield T-9 Rust and Corrosion Protection

I happen to live in an area known for extremely high levels of humidity. I tried Boeshield T-9 after using a number of other products to protect the cast iron tables on my band saw, table saw, etc. To say that I was impressed by Boeshield T-9 would be an understatement.

I had struggled with some rust spots on an area of one of my saw tables for quite a while. Following the instructions on the products, I first used a couple of applications of Boeshield Rust Free Rust and Stain Remover to clean up the troublesome rust spots before applying a layer of Boeshield T-9. Weeks later, the table was still completely clean and rust free.

Boeshield T-9 can be used for long-term storage protection as well. Simply clean the table or metal surface and then apply a heavy coating of T-9 and allow to dry completely. When you're ready to begin using the tool again, simply remove the excess protectant using mineral spirits or a degreaser, and your saw table condition should be as good as when you put it into storage.
