Wipe the machine down with Automatic Transmission Fluid, (ATF).  It is a 
better rust preventative and lubricant and works well as a cutting fluid 
too.  It can be thinned with kerosene or even cleaned off with kerosene 
should the gunk build up in the ATF.  WD-40 dries to a waxy crud that can 
bind up fine parts.
