I don’t always send my planes back to the till when I’m done with them but I do make sure to blow the chips and dust out as well as wipe the bodies down with the rag-in-a-can. This habit has the added side effect of keeping me from putting them back down on a project even if I don’t put them away.

So far only one block plane has picked up any light surface rust. Of course it was my favorite block plane that did. Other than that I’ve been going strong with no rust issues through 3 mid west summers in a non air conditioned garage shop.
