Power Tool Maintenance (Brought to you by Vermont Sales)
Lockdown is an excellent time to service all your power tools. The best friend for your power tools both electric and cordless is a compressor or electric workshop blower, to get rid of all the dust in the motors, plus lubricate if required. All air tools also need good lubricating.
Electric Cables (Brought to you by Vermont Sales)
Laying out all your cables can also make working a lot easier and safer.
A good, neat way to keep all your electric cables and charger cables neat and tidy is to cut your old pool hoses into small 5 centimetre pieces and fold all your cables and push them into the hose. It also allows you to hang them up neatly. Small PVC pipes or garden hose will work perfectly for your smaller charger cables.
