Seawater & Machinery

Most all of my shop machinery spent about 1-3 hours in saltwater after hurricane Sandy came through - ranging from about 2" to maybe 5". It didn't get into any of the motors or mechanicals, just the HTC bases and low portions of the stands. They were all washed with fresh water and dried fully 6 hours later (there doesn't appear to be any visable rust - should I expect any long term issues?

Just my opinion but you should be fine. I would give everything a good coating of wd40 just to be safe.

Like Troy said... you should be OK.. If you have any threaded adjustable legs, casters with ball bearings or other ferrous moving parts that got wet then a little oil wouldn't hurt.
