Wet saw storage.

Hi guys.
So... I finished up my tile projects, for now.
I have a ( silly ) question about storing my 7" Rigid wet saw, in the attic.
Couldn't find anything in the booklet about safe operating and/or storage temperature.
So I guess my question would be:

In your opinion, woud it be ok (or safe) to store a saw in the attic, with summer/winter temperature changes?

What would be too hot or too cold for a tile saw?

Thanks for your input.

Just make sure there is no water left in the plastic tubing and you should be fine.

Like many tools, temperature variations don't hurt. But the moisture that comes along with those variations does. To help combat the effects of moisture, make sure the entire saw is quite clean and absolutely dry. If you've still got the box, store it in there. That will slow down the daily temperature variations that may otherwise promote condensation. And treating the metal parts (metal rails and such) with a protectant like T-9 Boeshield would be a good thing.

And make sure its set flat and not wobbly.

Just spray it down with rust now so in 5 years you won't be dissapointed.

Thanks.
I let it dry out, took it apart, lathered in Water Displacement formula 40 ( didn't have anything else on hand) and boxed it up. I might put it away tomorrow.... until the next project.

Thanks again for your input.
