As spring finally gives way to summer the chances are that you will be wanting to spend far more time doing those bits of home improvement that have been on your mind all winter. With the better weather comes far more opportunity for us to utilise the outdoors as a workspace and will be a great excuse for many of us to spend protracted amounts of time bathing in the sun’s glorious rays.
However, just like spring reminds us that it may well be time to clean our houses and rid ourselves of those unwanted possessions, spring is also the perfect time to have a spring clean with your tools too. No matter whether you have a plethora of power tools or a comprehensive collection of cutting tools, there will no doubt be a great number of items that are no longer in the condition they should be in. Taking the time to give those items a thorough sort out and clean will help to better inform you as to whether they are actually still up to the tasks in hand or whether, like the rest of the junk in your house, they should be thrown out and replaced.
Cleaning those hand tools and cutting tools will mean that come summer those jobs are far easier and having a good grasp of exactly which tools need replacing and which don’t will mean that you are fully prepared to get working once those free summer days come your way.
Having the wrong or poorly maintained tools, whether they are power tools or hand tools, will lead you to have to put in far more effort than you should need to and in turn mean that those glorious summer days involve far more exertion that they should, potentially ruining the whole experience for you. So why not try spring cleaning your tools and see if you can make those summer jobs far easier and far more enjoyable?
