Have you noticed that some of your tools may not be as easy to use as they were when you took them out of the box and tested them out? Over time, metal loses its edge; it develops rust. What can you do to prevent this inevitable decline of your tools?
The best way to keep them in excellent working condition is to perform periodic maintenance. Although this is common sense, it is often the most neglected task. Remember, you want to slice your discs, not pound them. You want to sever your wire, not pinch it. In order to help your tools perform optimally, you’ll need to take a few minutes out of your day and give them some TLC.
In the following video, Tim Sheriff of Swanstrom Tools shares great tips for maintaining cutting edges on your valuable tools. If you own a Swanstrom Disc Cutter or a set of Swanstrom Super-Flush Cutters this video is a must see!
