HOW TO CLEAN POWER TOOLS
What You Need
As with most things of value, cleaning and maintenance of your power tools is key to prolonging their functionality and lifespan. As the old craftsman saying goes, "a poor workman blames his tools." That is to say, the only thing standing between the right materials, tools and a job well done is generally the person doing the work.
Proper power tool performance is important, to safely and accurately accomplish the tasks at hand. But without appropriate upkeep, your equipment stands a far greater chance of malfunction due to grime buildup.
Give your power tools some TLC to keep them working accurately and safely for years to come. After each use, you should clean your tools, with a more thorough deep cleaning once or twice a year. Proper lubrication can help prevent degradation of parts, which could lead to other parts wearing out prematurely.
Whether cleaning a recently-purchased tool or a grimy old tool from a garage sale, these steps will get your power tools looking and performing their best.
