I just spent a good, long time detail cleaning the innards of my TS. The cranks all turn so easily now! I plan on doing a similar thorough cleaning on my planer, jointer, and bandsaw. Once I get everything all clean and shiny I want to get into good habits and learn the best practices for keeping my tools in top working order. I can’t think of a better place to turn for advice and tips than from you more experienced folks in the LJ community. I’m sure there is a difference between weekend warriors and people who earn a living day to day in their shops, but what are your maintenance routines?
How often do you do a thorough inside and out cleaning of your major tools?
What are your favorite products and methods for cleaning?
What are your favorite products for lubricating moving parts and waxing tables?
How often do you do tune ups to ensure everything is in alignment?
Any other pointers for good tool maintenance?
