I had something similar happen when I put a plane inside a trailer for the night with a stack of green treat. While my plane was on top of a plastic tote, it still got alight coating of rust over everything after being inside the warm trailer with all that moisture all night. Nothing difficult, but still annoying.

That’s the one thing about my LA jack I’m not so fond of, it rusts and stains very quickly if the wood has some moisture in it. : (

Thanks for the idea. I think I will do a full disassembly and inspect/clean and oil this weekend.

CF, that’s happened to me to. I have yet to build a till though.

OMG! You should be reported for tool abuse!

Heh!, I think everyone has had something like this happen, truly “DOH!” moments 8^)

I’ve a good collection of various construction tools with rust provided by leaving them on PT lumber, I’m sure it’ll happen again.

I was chasing an edge with my then new LV #4 plane when I kept feeling the bump of a small knot. After a few passes I decided to take a look and that knot was really the tip of a screw…

Great you got your side of the story out before a scandal broke out and ruined your reputation 8^)

Don’t leave green or PT lumber laying on your cast iron tops either. I’ve had rust form while I took a lunch break.

I can join this club myself. I left a piece of PT wood on top on my table saw for a day.

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.

What is “PT Lumber?” I can’t figure out this acronym.

Thanks. Was having a hard time with that. Brain kept saying “Part Time” which made no sense.

I made a similar mistake by leaving a piece of cedar fencing on my table saw. I was PO’d at myself. I spent the entire next day cleaning off my table saw. I cussed myself up one side and down the other. I’ve become a big fan of paste wax and paraffin one my tools.

So very true, I guess I threw that in there as a way to avoid the conversation going in the “you should never lay a plane down on it’s face or sole”.

I’ve never done it with a plane but my table saw has suffered similar abuse.
