Tom has an excellent suggestion. However, when I worked as a machinist, we used a dry silicon spray for that purpose.

We needed a material that did not attract or entrap dust.

One does NOT want to get silicone on any wood that is going to be
finished (stained, varnished, oiled).

A classic approach is paste floor wax, e.g., Butcher's.

Try a woodworking newsgroup.

"Sheet metal surfaces"

Not wood. Which does not rust in any case.

Best way depends entirely on your app, which you have not clarified. Teflon coated, gold plated, powder coated, oil, wax, paint, zinc, chrome, brass, burnt oil, any might be the best in your case.

Any product for the purpose would have the same result.
