Keeping your shop clean and organized increases your efficiency and productivity, plus can extend the life of your tools. Put the 'routine' in routine maintenance and set a calendar reminder to schedule time to make organizing your shop and maintaining your tools, coolant, and equipment a priority. Watch this video as Kurt Repsher walks you through routine maintenance tasks you should add to your 'to-do' list and calendar reminder.




 

Keep your shop organized using your calendar

Every two months, set a calendar reminder to clean your shop and complete routine maintenance tasks. Routine maintenance tasks can include:

  • Lubricating and greasing moving parts on your machines
  • Checking concentration levels of coolant
  • Checking spindle belts for wear and replace or repair as needed
  • Cleaning tools and machinery, including a thorough 'wipe down' and chip removal from work areas and the actuator
  • Inspecting equipment to ensure proper operation and safety
  • Tightening screws and fasteners that may have loosened over time or due to exposure to vibrations
  • Returning tools to proper cases and storage spaces
  • Organizing tool carts and surface areas
  • Cleaning floors and work areas
  • Replacing HVAC filters
  • Washing windows
  • Landscaping
