A thin layer of cabinet grade plywood.


That prevents rust



You are as stupid as ever. All the other methods given in other posts will contaminate the wood. With the plywood cap in place, you can treat the metal with anything you want without the contamination problem. Just as a good condom would have prevented your dad from contaminating the gene pool.

What part of the band saw? Steel, stainless, cast iron, pot metal,
saw blade, etc???? It helps to know what you're trying to protect.
Also, some of the coating methods I suggested below are not
appropriate for some flavors of steel.

Bee's Wax ?
Suggestions please.


Cold bluing or passivation is probably the easiest, cheapest, and
least protective method of protecting steel. The problem with wood
working machinery is that it will abrade away the surface coating,
expose the underlying steel, and proceed to rust. Hot bluing is more
durable but requires multiple layers of bluing:

If you want better protection, I suggest:
1. Nickel electroplating.
2. Black chrome plating over nickel.
3. Powder coated paint.

If you need the surface to absorb oil for lubrication, I suggest
Parkerizing:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parkerizing

Nickel plating, you can probably it do yourself at home.

The others, I suggest you send the unspecified band saw part to a
plating shop and have them plate it.

For powder coating paint:
https://www.eastwood.com/hotcoat-powder-coating.html
or ask at your local automobile paint shop.

If you don't mind re-coating the steel part, try one of the rust
inhibiting sprays or coatings. For example:
