Im talking in the big cans, like 1-5 gallons. To be used for rustproofing. We had a Jeep once that was coated yearly with the stuff, and that thing was solid, even after years of Pittsburgh winters.

Walmart lists 5 gallon cans on their web site. It's sold by a partner, so you can't pick it up at the store. About $85 + $20 shipping.

Home Depot shows it in stock at a nearby store in gallon cans. So does Lowes. Both show it about $25/gal.

All these are being sold as wood finishes. Do you need a different formulation?
If it ain't broke, I'll fix it!

I use a mixture of boiled linseed oil and beeswax to coat my tools.

I usually give my tools a thin coat of the oil used in air tools when I pack them away.
I figure it's sticky enough to stay on for a while...
(Also, it came in a large can, and I mostly use my compressor twice a year... )

Around $120 for 5 gallons. It can be just about any formula, as long as it isnt pigmented for use as a paint. I was hoping to find a wholesale seller, use my company to its best benefit. We got to keep these shop vehicles shiny!
