Saw this on the Red Power site. don't know if it is effective or not.

I wonder about it for stored rifles but would worry about it forming a film on scopes lenses, even with covers on.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I've never heard of this, but do love the rockler toy store. (have one near work)
The guys in there usually know a whole lot about woodworking and tools. Never heard of camphor as a rust inhibitor before.

My fuel tank neck reformer from "Earl" was shipped with camphor. I have stored it in a closed container with same and after several years--no rust.

Many machinists where I have worked have used this stuff. I never liked the smell. Oiled my measuring tools with Starrett instrument oil.
