If you don’t care for your tools, it won’t matter how nice they are to start with. I do believe in buying the best tools you can afford. The first thing most people have is a tool chest or toolbox to store their tools. It is important to have your tools seperated so as not to bang or rub into each other, this prevents blades and cutting tools from dulling. Yet it is common to find toolboxes not kept in the most idea of locations. Reducing the amount of moisture in the air is one of the most important things you can do to increase the life of your tools. One option is purchasing @@AMAZONTEXT;B0034G4OB8;a dehumidifier@@. An inexpensive way to deal with this is by using a @@AMAZONTEXT;B0025OO8DO;silica gel can@@, which is small enough to fit in a drawer, and will help to absorb the moisture. These require reactivation or replacement every so often.

So what do you do when you get rust on your tools? it is important to remove the rust as soon as possible. Steel wool can be used to remove it, but will scratch your tools. Chemicals can also be employeed as well. It comes down to personal preference. You can always @@AMAZONTEXT;B001AU3J6Q;spraying it down with WD40@@ first, if you find it to be a bit more rough in terms of rust. To help protect it form rusting further, you should spray it down with more WD-40 or another type of oil.

Wooden handles also need to be dealt with carefully. They should be oiled (and some people use a combination oil and bee’s wax paste) to condition and protect the wood from splitting. If you have a handle that has split, you should consider either replacing it or trying to repair it with some wood glue and a bit of sanding. It is defininately easier to keep your tools nice from the start then having to bring them back after mistreating them.
