Habits for shop success
Clear the clutter
Few things waste as much shop time or raise irritation levels as high as misplacing the tool you need (or the one you just laid down) in the clutter on your bench. And stumbling over scraps on the floor as you search just makes matters worse.
Everything you need to know about keeping your work area efficient stems from lessons your mom taught.
- Clear scraps, chips, and sawdust off your workbench and tool tables often.
- Toss trash into a can, not on the floor.
- Put away tools you're finished using.
- Set machined parts aside so you won't mistake them for raw stock or scraps. See more Resources, slide 14.
