Default Boeshield on ways and bed ?

To prevent rust, I'm thinking about spraying a thin coat of Boeshield T9 on
my mill's table and ways, and on my lathe's bed. But can I use them like
that, or will the Boeshield cause binding between the moving parts? Am I
better using a less thick spray like Starrett M1? Is there something else
more suitable? Light machine oil?

Way oil?

For long-term storage, yes, Boeshield's the stuff along with LPS 3, as
long as you clean it off before using it again. LPS 3 is usually
cheaper around here. Between uses, if you've got a rust problem
because of humidity, use LPS 2 or something similar. Way oil may do,
too. If it's a real problem, you might consider a dehumidifier and
some shop heat.
