Maintaining Power Tools

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 01, 2013

We invest a lot into our power tools. Not just money, but peace-of-mind, a way to relax. No matter how rugged or durable our power tools are, they still need regular maintenance.

To ensure that your power tools run safely and efficiently, here are some tips for power tool maintenance:

1. Keep your power tools clean and dry
Don't let your tools get wet or expose them to extreme temperatures. Wipe them off after each use to eliminate dust and debris.

2. Keep blades clean and sharp
Dull blades don’t perform well. They also make your machine work harder, which can cause them to overheat.  

3. Oil
Without oil as a lubricant the moving components will break. Make sure your power tools have the right amount and the right kind of oil. Oil allows all the moving parts to move without friction. Too much oil results in sludge, too little oil can cause them to overheat or seize.

4. Replace parts when needed
Power tools suffer from heat, friction and wear-and-tear. Over time the components wear out. Replace power tool parts when they've become too worn or damaged. This will give your power tools better performance and a longer life.

For power tool parts and service, contact J&J Small Engine Clinic.

Power Tool Maintenance and Service

Joseph Coupal - Friday, February 15, 2013

It is frustrating when you begin a project only to find that your power tools are not working. The best way to avoid this is to have your regularly scheduled maintenance on your power tools.

Many people with power tools are do-it-youselfers. So many power tool owners attempt to maintain or “fix” their tools on their own. But small engines are a different animal. Too many times we see people spend money on new tools because they can’t fix it themselves.

If you have a tool or piece of equipment with a small engine which is not running properly (or not running at all), seek professional assistance. Sometimes a problem is bigger than you can handle, but easy enough to be fixed more economically than buying a new tool.

So if you're trying to resolve an issue with your power tools, lawnmower, or snow blower, contact J&J Small Engine Clinic for small engine parts, service and regular maintenance.
