I live in Florida, I have a 20'x24' shop well insulated, with an A/C-Heat unit. Do not run to much do not need it. I have hand tools and radial, band saws, and drill press, which is surface rusting. Need some good advice or a good product I can use to keep the rust down. Do not use tools that much, but want to keep them good shape. Appreciate any help

You can get the rust off and apply a thin coat of Johnson Paste Wax. This will also keep the metal somewhat lubricated. Stay away from silicone based products because they will get into the wood and make staining and finishing a real hassle if this is even an issue for your shop.
