Tips on How to Maintain Power Tools

by Guest on Oct 26, 2012

Power tools make our lives easier. If you've ever tried to cut down a tree using an axe and then done the same using a chain saw, you definitely appreciate the back-saving difference. To ensure that you keep safe when using the tools, you need the knowledge of two factors; how the tools function and what powers them.

Equally important, this information will help you use the power tools appropriately to ensure that your tool delivers maximum efficiency for a long period of time. Leaf through the following editorial on tips on how to maintain power tools and learn how you can prolong the life span of you machine.

Power Tool Maintenance

Keep your Tools Dry

Wear and tear is unavoidable but you can easily reduce the rate at which your tools get old. When you're storing your power tools, make sure that you place them in a dry area and away from direct sunlight. Moisture can corrode the metal parts of our tools and damage the electrical components. If the tool came in a protective case, store it in its case as the case protects the machine from moisture, excessive heat, scratches and bumps.

Remove Dust Particles and Shavings

Dust and wood particles as well as metal shavings are hazardous to the power tools. They can destroy the chuck and slow down the machine's motor on any power tool. So, when you are done using your tool, use a blower to blow out the openings, vents and the moving parts that easily collect and accumulate dust and shaving particles. Doing this will save you a number of trips to the tool store of power tools spares.

Cleaning and Oiling your Tools

A combination of dust, shavings, grease and grime can adversely affect the performance of your tools. It is therefore important that, once in a while, you clean the tools by simply wiping them down before you store them away. In addition to that, you should deep clean the machines at least once every year. Deep cleaning includes disassembling the power tool and cleaning the parts each at a time.

You should also oil the tool's moveable parts to reduce wear and tear. However, too much oiling can build up and impede the tools from functioning properly. One drop of oil usually lasts for long but you should refer to the manual for precise instructions on the type and amount of oil you should use on the power tools.

Replacing Worn Out Parts

There are instance where parts such as the blade get worn out or break. Such instances call for replacements. Make a trip to the local power tool store and ask for the power tool spares that you require. When purchasing the spares, make sure that you avail original spares that will perfectly fit in your machine. You therefore need to check your power tool model so that you can avail the correct spare part type.


Moreover, make sure that you use the manual when replacing worn out parts. Following the guidelines stipulated in the manual will help you install the power tool spares appropriately without breaking or losing other parts. This can help you save a lot of money.

Most power tools are usually expensive but this can be explained by their efficiency. Following the afore-mentioned tips will ensure that you prevent premature tear and wear and keep your tools working smoothly for many years to come.
