If you read the 7 Habits of highly effective people, one particular habit is called sharpening the saw. Which means taking a step back from your usual activities and maintaining or upgrading your equipment! As modellers we always subject our tools to extreme use. And its even worse for those with sweaty palms…our tools tend to rust more!! Today gonna share how I maintain my trustworthy 1 year old side cutter. As you can see…its badly rusted and its creaky already lol…
Step 1 : Sand with 600 followed by 1000 grit sandpaper
As you can see, its shinier already!
Step 2 : Repeat sanding for the bottom too!
Step 4 : Dab a bit of oil with a tissue and apply onto the blade
