if it's just some surface rust, you might be able to take care of it with some steel wool. as for protecting it, and thin coat of paste wax seems to work well to make it slide smoothly and prevent rusting without gumming it up
Wilton is to bench vises as Steinway is to grand pianos.. Great vise indeed.. RWTF
I was surprised how poorly the Wilton vises fared when tested to extreme limits of strength.
It doesn't sound like the rusting problem posed here was at all bad. I'm still blown away with how well a solution of feed grade molasses does when it comes to removing rust from iron and steel. Nothing is more cost effective either. The only real drawback is that the process can involve soaking the rusted item in the solution for a week or more.
