Guys, sit in a little closer. It won’t take long to get through. Then you can all get back to your machine work. But then again, before you get back to work, make a point of first investing in your new lubrication systems. Do not wait for your last can of oil to dry up, discard it right now. Of course, you won’t have to waste it and here’s your opportunity to adopt the theme running through the rest of this article. You are encouraged to recycle and, where you can, re-use all remaining materials.
It has to be said, however, that you’ll be waiting an awful long time before you get to recycle your new lubricant. In fact, chances are good that you won’t have to recycle it at all. You’ll only need to recycle the container and every last drop of your new lubricant will be used. But this is going to take years in comparison to the dirty oil you’ve been using so far. In comparison, only a drop or so is needed to clean a set of tools or piece of equipment.
This drop or so does a lot more to preserve and prolong the life of your tools and machinery. What it is also does really well is absorb as many dust particles or debris emanating from your industrious work processes. This makes cleaning the workshop all the more quicker and easier. While working and when the shop is closed for the day, this clean environment equates to a safer environment as well. If you’re sitting with an inventory of old tools, don’t discard them just yet.
Use this opportunity to use the new lubricating system to clean those old tools and restore its life.
