Tips for Handling your Workshop Equipment
Regardless of whether dealing with an entry-level tool or a professional model, they both require care and attention so that they will last for years to come. The following tips will keep your tools in tip-top shape:
- After use, clean the parts of the tool or device that encountered work surfaces - this includes drills, saw blades or grinders. This is easy to do with a brush, paintbrush, rag or compressed air.
- Charge the batteries of the power tools regularly so that you can start right away the next time you use them. Do not store tools for long periods when the battery is low, as this will degrade the performance of the battery.
- Remove small parts such as bits or drills from the machines after use and put them in the storage holders provided or that you create. It is easy to think, “I will remember where this goes”, only to be distracted and or start another task and forget upon returning. If you prepare and organize, the next time you have everything at hand without having to look for it first.
- Do not overload your tools - if, for example, a drill cannot be driven into a reinforced concrete wall or the rusted screw does not move a millimeter, the machine's gearbox and motor likely have reached their limits. Try a more powerful device or consult an expert on the correct technique and equipment to complete your desired goal.
Unplug electrical appliances after use so you cannot accidentally turn them on. Always safety first.
