I just bought a new set of hand tools to start my electrical career. What is the best way to lubricate them and what should I use? Please give me your valuable suggestions.
Thanks in advance!

Welcome to Ljs Areyanna
It has a lot to do with what kind of tools your talking about. Just general tools like plyers and wrenches you can spray with WD 40 and wipe of the excess and repeat anywhere from once a week to once a month depending on how much contact your tools have to wet weather .

Sure do like Jim’s reply. The WD in WD40 is for “water displacement”.
