I put anti-rust shelf liner in my tool drawers, e.g., Zerust 91140 Anti-Rust And Corrosion Drawer Liner . There are other Zerust products such as blocks and plastic tabs. These release a vapor that inhibits rust, but they need to be in a closed area. Perhaps your box is good enough to provide that area? Or, you could look for a plastic storage tote / tub? I have a tub that is maybe 18″ x 24″ x 8″ (guessing…it isn’t in front of me) that I use to carry some tools to classes. One or two of those would be better than one super deep one.
Do you actually experience rust on your tools? Are you sure it is from humidity rather than from your hands?
(Btw, I originally had links in this post to the products, but my experience here is that posts with links disappear into the void and never are posted. I’m guessing posts with links go into a moderation queue from which they are never or rarely released. I posted something a couple weeks ago that never appeared.)
