Default Paint stripping and rust prevention?

I'm restoring my Clausing 8520 mill and am in the process of stripping the
old paint. Trying to figure a way to keep it from rusting till I re-paint,
was thinking of coating it with LPS and then washing it off with solvent
right before the primer. A fellow mentioned this product on another board,
is it OK to put on ways etc.? Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance...

I would use Mold Saver. It comes in a spray can and is designed to keep
molds from rusting while in storage. It has a very waxy film, but is easily
washed off with most solvents.

Of course one of the reasons I would choose it is because I have some on the
shelf.

Great idea, thanks. I see several brands, is one better than the others?
Does it wash off clean with a light solvent like varsol?

I don't know what is better. I usually get mine from BMS Burns because they
seem to have the best prices. I use #A677 as a mold saver, and I use #93234
as a solvent. http://www.bmsburns.com/Catalog/Cata...%20287-304.pdf

Why not shoot it with a light coat of Rustoleum (or equivalent
anti-rust) primer?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
As long as you're going to coat it with something, why not just spray on a
light coat of primer? Then there's nothing to wash off later. For the
ways, of course, I would just wipe on some oil.

You could also use POR-15.

sitting a while, plus I have to finish my new sparay booth first!
