That was probably my post about using camphor blocks to prevent rust from
forming on tools and measuring instruments. It slowly evaporates and the
camphor vapor forms a protective film on any metal that's in the same
drawer. You must keep the drawers closed when you're not using the tools to
make it effective.
I learned this old trick from a master machinist named "Lucky" Luckadoo in
Virginia years ago.

Subject: Tool Box Protection
Someone mentioned a product you could pick up at the drug store to place in
a tool box to protect the tools from moisture. I can't recall what that was.
