mine too, i have an AC and in the summer i run it once in awhile but if i'm in there i run it the whole time ever cince i got that it's been good but my planes i put a coat of parafin wax the soles and cheeks in use and before i put them up i wipe them down and put more parafin wax. this works for me. i have one shoulder plane i just got it's a veritas and that i have to put regular paste wax on just like my TS,Drill press,Jointer,Planer etc. GOOD LUCK!
I just use a good layer of paste wax too. I'm in the UK and my tools are mostly on open shelves in a draughty, unheated garage, and get used no more than once a week during winter, when the humidity is >80% for most of the time. As Rob says, it helps to get them warm before doing this the first time, so the wax gets into the surface pores. I have to use an oven though, not as much sun as in California.
