3 Ways To Give Thanks To Your Tools
Posted on November 13th, 2017 by American Ladders
There are a number of things that make up a good chest of tools — and clean, functioning ones are at the top! No matter which one you’re using, care and consideration needs to be thought of before they’re deemed ‘functioning’ or ‘safe’. Most of the time, we use these tools the throw them in the chest when they’re done — but we can always change how we protect them. Here are a few ways you can say ‘thanks’ to your tools this season.
Keep them Clean!
If you’re using smaller hand tools and they get dirty, the last thing you should be doing is just tossing them into the toolbox before cleaning them. Even while certain grime and dirt won’t have too much of an effect, it can lead to issues down the line with your tools, and that’s not what you need. Make sure to wipe them off before they’re placed back in for any period of time.
Instead of tossing your tools in specific areas and letting them knock into other tools and risk damage, make sure you’re keeping them in a safe place when they’re not in use. In your truck or van, a tool chest or box in the bed is your best choice — and it can be locked for security! A simple option like this makes the process much easier and keeps your tools free from most forms of damage.
Above all else, buying a cheap tool for the job warrants a few things — the possibility of it breaking, and the lack of longevity it provides. Because this is a huge issue, make sure that where you’re spending your money is going to a good cause and you’re not wasting it on cheap items. Proven names in the industry are where your money is best spent and it’s important to make the best investments possible.
