Rust

How are you gentleman battling rust in your shops?

I've spent most of my life in Upstate NY, and never had much of an issue. I've recently moved near Atlanta, and my garage his HUMID. I went out there and saw some surface rust on my new Lee Valley saws, and promptly lost it...I pulled everything out and soaked them down with WD-40 and a quick wipe...

Not sure If I should try to wax everything? I choose WD-40 because I had it, and my restored Handsaw from a previous thread wasn't rusting with that on it.
