HI,
well i have a tip i use in my work shop right i know im a 15 year old but hear me out,
right i recently just bout a brand new set of clarke HD PLUS, tool cabinets and chests you know the top of the range ones from machine mart, well the cold weather is coming well has come and well condensation looms (grrrrrrr hate condensation) well anyway i guess no body buys cheap tools for obvious reasons. if you dont no why not to buy cheap tools ill let u find out ur self, well anyway back to the point, well you bought some good decent tools to chuck in your roll cab and tool chest but and condensation sets it has a tendency to creep inside your tool box and if you have ratchet spanners or any tool without crome vanadium plating on them i.e on the rathcet rings condenstion can corrode them (rust) well heres my tip after all of that, well ever bought a pair of shoes and opened the shoe box and took the paper out of the shoes and found a little packet? its called a silca pouch (looks like a packet of salt) well if you read it it says do not eat for obvious reasons well, the perpose of these pouches is to absorb moisture int the air, so simple get some of these and bung them into each draw of your tool chest see simple but clever as they will absorb all moisture in the tool chest or draw meaning it protects yor tools, right i did this a week or 2 back, and every time o come to my pride n joy halfords pro sets they dont have condensation on them at all even tonight, well i got lucky as at first i used little packets like 1x1 inch but after buying 3 laptops this week yes 3!!!!!!!! you find they come with huge silca packs. im talkin like 6x4 inch bags well anyway use this tip and im sure u wont regret it. hope this helps
....matt

You know that's not a bad idea at all... I've used silica bags for other things ( used to buy in rather large computers called servers and they had lots and lots of silica bags in them) but I never thought to chuck em in with my tools... I've always just dashed em with WD40 and a wipe over... Very Happy

Nice one matey... will keep that in mind...

I've not the money for laptops or shoe's mind... all goes on the landy does my pocket money... Laughing

You can actually buy the stuff in bags which means you can just put it in a small container and refill as needed. We use this in our caravan when it's in storage to keep the damp out.

Yep, and then put it in an oven to dry when it's soaked up all the condensation.

Pocket money is the amount I'm allowed each month in varying degree's... i.e. this month I'm not allowed to go shopping at Ashcroft's due to xmas... but I can have a cheap 1/24 model 90 instead... Razz

Used to get it from a local camping and caravanning supplies store in a nice big bag many years ago for the family 'van...

you obviously never use theyes tool or you wouldn't be conserened about a bit of rust when using them on a landy they get covered in ep90 and every other sort of crud so rust wont go near they with that stuf on them

the snap on tool man would love you, they sell cleaner now thats gaurantied to keep your tools clean and rust free cost 55 for 1/2 a 1lrt

it must take you 4 hours do change a wheel when you've been offroading 10seconds to change the wheel and the rest cleaning you tools

come look at my tool box not a shiny tool in sight just ask ejp he will tell you Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

There's always one... Laughing

My brother always throws his tools back dirty and covered... I go to his garage and I wear gloves to borrow a screwdriver... Shocked Laughing

I always wipe over my tools with a clean cloth and if they are really bad a cloth soaked in WD40/TTspray or even de-greaser if they're really bad... Very Happy
