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.
