I spent over twenty years as a manager in the auto business. One of the first things that I taught young techs was to maintain their tools. It’s a skill that is sometimes forgotten with our home tools.
Being a part -time hobbyist woodworker (as most of us are), I find it hard to find the time for tool cleaning and service. Tonight I took the time to do just that. After spending about 5 hours cleaning,waxing, and lubing my tools, I feel great. What an awesome feeling of accomplishment I have when I look at my clean machines. Now I need the time to finish my projects I have started.

I try to do it as much as possible but I let it go for too long sometimes. My big problem is putting the tools back where the belong. When I finally get to putting the buggers away I do a little sharpening, waxing, and dusting.

Have your say...
