Rust protection
Hehehehe thanks Gerald. My V rails are done and the V tires are coming soon. In a few days I'll put some pictures.
Another question, what is used on the V to protect against rust?

We are not putting anything special on the rails, but in our workshop in general we have few problems from rust. I suppose a light wipe with an oil cloth will be enough? Probably the same for all your other tools.

This thread on the old forum may be interesting.

In my humid climate, I have found:

oil + sawdust + humidity = big mess.

There is a product that I use that has so far exceeded my expectations that I consider it a near "miracle". I use Boeshield.

Boeshield T-9, developed by the Boeing company, was created to protect the polished metal parts on mainly landing gear. You can imagine that the metal landing struts (Giant shock absorber / spring combinations) as well as steering mechanisms are exposed to the worst extreme scenarios. Very hot, very cold, very wet, very dry. The product works so well that a little spray on a rag and a quick wipe will protect the polished rails for MONTHS!

I can't say enough. I have told all of my friends and they think as highly of it as I do. I wish I made money whenever someone buys it but, don't worry, I don't.

Here is a link:

I'll see you your Boeing and raise you the US Navy


Keeps aluminium (aluminum) free from corrosion from salt spray on motorbikes, jets vector thrust jet engines.

I use it, I'd buy the company if I could.

I ride bikes in winter and a good coat of this stuff all over the bike in autumn and a wash in Spring is all that is required.
