Storage of equipment

   As I have acquired a new car my garage is no longer big enough for all 
my toys.  I had to move my Delta Unisaw and shaper and drill press outside 
of the garage.  I put them in a space next to the garage that has a 
fibreglass roof and nice strong locked wooden gate at the driveway 
end.  But that gate is by no means airtight.  And the other end into my 
backyard is just a chain link gate.  How do I prevent these great tools 
from rusting ?

   For now I just waxed the daylights out of the surface and covered them 
table tops with 30wt motor oil (its what I had handy).  I was thinking I 
should grease them instead or cosmolene (if I can find that stuff) but it 
wont help all the nuts/bolts/misc small parts on the tools.   My wife 
suggested wrapping them in plastic and spraying oil into the plastic...any 
better ideas ?  These tools are there for quite a while, probably years but 
I would like to be able to use them once in a while.  My cars are wood 
framed after all and I still do like to build things, something that 
protects them and yet is easily cleaned is the fantasy.

    Any suggestions ?
