With Permies.com, the internet and I looks like you have the will to do it, so just do it.
(I admit I didn't read the entire post as it was way to long. Sorry)
And the reason the post was so long is because there are so many things to know and do on a homestead, but I didn't even cover half. And I've not even arrived on the property.
Thank you everyone for valuable input.

Once a year, dip the blades of your various garden tools into it. The sand will held to remove rust, and the oil will provide protection. I normally do this before I put tools away for the winter. Of course, clean the tool to remove the oil before working the soil.
