Power Tools: The Gift of Choice

Power tools are often a wife’s and mom’s best friend during the shopping season before Christmas.

They make for easy, one-stop-buying for guys in the family. At least that’s how it is around our household.

Here are tips if tools are the gift of choice:

  • Read instructions for operation and safety.
  • Keep instructions for all tools in a drawer or folder so they’re readily available when there’s a question about operation, upkeep, and trouble shooting.
  • Write the date with a Sharpie marker on batteries to keep up with their lifespan. All batteries wear out eventually, but not until after a 1,000 charges or so if it’s a top-of-the-line battery.
  • Record serial numbers of power tools in case of theft or fire.
  • Put small parts back in the case or designate a drawer or container for easy access.

If tools are your hobby, when it’s time to get down to business, call SCI – Southern Coast Improvements @ 843-421-9255.
