Tool Maintenance Tips

Take Me To Post Comment Form

As you probably know, tools can be expensive. Consequently, it's very important to prolong their lifetime and get the most use out of your tools. Perhaps the best way to do this is to take care of them and keep them properly maintained. Here are some tips that can help you do this.

Clean Them On A Regular Basis

Regardless of the projects you work on, it's common for tools to acquire dirt, dust and grease. Over time, this will continue to build and can significantly inhibit their performance and potentially cause safety hazards. That's why you should take the time to wipe them down after each use so there is no leftover debris. It's also smart to give power tools a deep clean every once in awhile by disassembling them and cleaning off individual parts. While it may require a little bit of work initially, you'll be glad you did it when your tools last for years.

Get Rid Of Shavings

Whenever you're dealing with power tools that create wood or metal shavings, it's critical that you periodically blow these off. If you don't, these shavings can get stuck in the motor and cause a host of problems. That's why you should use canned air to remove wood shavings from your Fein multi tool blades and enhance their performance. In many cases, this can save you money on serious repairs or having to replace your power tools.

Keep Tools Dry

Another simple way to care for your tools is to always keep them away from moisture. For instance, storing them in a location that isn't prone to damp air is smart. Otherwise, it's possible for metal parts to rust and corrode quicker than they should. Besides this, keeping them in an environment that's neither too hot nor too cold is important because excessive temperatures can also be detrimental and cause unnecessary issues.

Oil Air Tools

When it comes to air tools like nail guns and air compressors, you definitely want to keep them well oiled to maximize their performance. Since tools can vary in terms of maintenance, you should consult the owner's manual to find out exactly what you should do.

Sharpen Blades

For any tool that uses a blade, it's necessary to keep it well sharpened at all times. Not only is this important for prolonging the lifetime of products like Fein multi tool blades, it's important from a safety standpoint. Since a dull blade makes it harder to cut through wood and other materials, this can put you at risk for being injured. For this reason, you should make sure that a blade is adequately sharpened prior to using it. If it's not, you will need to spend time sharpening it.
