With this in mind, below are some of the things that you could do in order to make sure that you give your tools all the care that they need.
One of the most important things that you could do for your tools and for yourself is to provide a good storage area for the tools. The storage area for the tools can be thought about in two ways. First, you want to make sure that the tools that you use are accessible to you when you are using them and that they are safe and in a place that you can easily remember when you are working with the tools. The second important part is to make sure that when you are not using the tools, they are keep far away from harm from the environment and from people that may come to your work area. Of course this also allows you to protect any accidents related to tools that are left lying around in the wrong place. If you have a set of linesman pliers for example, you should therefore have a spot where you store the tool when you are using it with a current job at hand. You should also have a specific storage area such as a toolbox or a designated area where you keep the tool when you are not sing it.
The storage area where you keep the tools that you are not using should be such that it keeps the tools protected from the elements as well. Essentially, if you have a pair of linesman pliers for example, you want to protect them from moisture or humidity, or from dry heat and worst of all from dust and other elements as well. Besides the storage of the tools, the other thing that you could do to ensure that the tools that you use are well-cared for is to simply make sure that you do regular repair and maintenance.
