Dos and Don ts - Hand tools machines

Dos and Don ts - Hand tools machines:

  • Use the right tool for the job or task.
  • Inspect your tools prior to using them; look for worn parts, cracks, or broken pieces. If these conditions occur, replace the tool.
  • Wear safety goggles or glasses when using hand tools. Metal debris can fly into your eyes.
  • Use ratchet devices to drive in hard-to-move screws or use a powered screw driver.

  • Never use worn out or broken tools. Replace them with new ones.
  • Don’t use objects or other tools other than a hammer for pounding.
  • Don’t use hand tools with greasy or oily hands which can cause slippage.
  • Don’t use a hammer with a chipped or mushroomed face.
