what is the purpose of the mag sheets ? where will you put them ??

and YES – magnetic sheets trap moisture underneath them if not removed
often enough. and it sounds like your use will be short term. but, I would
avoid long term use on cast iron.
I had my tools in a greenhouse for a year and it also got dripping wet like you describe.
I covered the metal machines with a painters drop cloth then plastic on top of that.
magnetic sheet is designed so it won’t fall off of something, like advertisement on a truck door.
for table saws, jointers, drill presses, etc. why not use something that can breathe when it gets damp.
[plus, moving it around the shop, it will pick up every small piece of metal it comes in contact with].

but -magnetic sheets for moisture protection ??? please explain a little more.
