As we fire up our spring projects it’s clear that we need to wipe the dust off some of our power tools and give them a once over to make sure they are in good operating condition which means they are safe to use and effective.
Here’s a starting point for checking your tools for any damage or wear and how to recognize when they need repair. One of the most common issues are worn power cords which can be dangerous and should be fixed immediately, learn how to repair the cord yourself.
If your tools are beyond salvaging but you don’t have the deep pockets for new one’s, then consider reconditioned tools either from the factory or other resellers.
