    Maintainance and storage of tools

    It is very important to look after your tools:

    Wipe blades clean straight after use

    Wipe the blade over with light oil if storing for a long period, to avoid rust

    Store in a dry environment

    Tip: If you need to borrow a tool from someone else, always ask first and return

    it clean or you may find yourself very unpopular with your workmates.
