I have a mostly operational press, which has a generous coat of rust on most surfaces. It will be a while before I can clean it as it deserves.

Any suggestions for what I can put on the surface of the bare metal to prevent additional rusting?

Liquid wrench, wd40, or just plain oil should help to prevent it from rusting further, also store it in a heated space which will help a lot. Dick G.

Will a light oil or penetrating oil be sufficient to reduce rust when the piece is already rusted (under the application of oil) and will sit for a while (months) before being cleaned up?
