Thread: Preventing rust on machine tools
I used an offcut of trace heating cable years ago when my lathe was in an uninsulated shed: feed it inside/around the machine and it delivers gentle heat... e.g.

... but TBH the only real solution is to insulate the heck out of the building rather than mess around with half measures on the tools themselves. Makes for a much more pleasant working environment too, and insulation also doubles as sound insulation so the neighbours won't complain.
Anyone use this, seems reasonably priced?
