Rubbing compound, polshing compound and paste wax? Answered

I wanted to prevent rust buildup on some of my tools. Especially on my drill bits. I have been reading a few and mostly found out that Johnson's paste wax are what other people use to prevent rust. Does a rubbing compound alone will prevent rust or does it need to be finished with a paste wax? I do notice that the rubbing compound is mostly to level or smoothen the surface. Just wondering if it also has the ability to prevent rust. Thank you.

I'd use both. Polishing compound will remove existing rust, and the paste wax will protect the tool from future rust.

Thank you, I will use both. Wondering if turtle paste wax will be as good as something like johnson's?

I don't think that polishing compound provides any rust protection. I suggest using either paste wax or beeswax.
