How to Clean Power Tools
Hey guys, I am in a transitional period in my business. I am moving all my equipment from my old to new shop. But, I dont want to put all that dirty, dusty stuff in my new, clean shop. What is the best way have ya'll found to REALLY clean your big tools. For instance, the dirtiest of my tools are my DEWALT DWS780 12-Inch Double Bevel Sliding Compound Miter, and my DEWALT DW715 15-Amp 12-Inch Single-Bevel Compound Miter Saw; each of which sits on Ridgid AC9945 Miter Saw stands and my Ridgid R4513 10" table saw. All these gets the dirtiest because they are all portable in-which gets carried to job sites with me. As ya'll probably know it's pretty easy to clean tools that have been in a controlled, dry environment like a shop. But these tools get used a LOT and a lot of it they are out side, and they have seen their fair share of flash thundershowers. Of course I do all I can to keep them out of the weather, but getting wet is inevitable from time to time. Which when it hits all that dust makes it all the worse when trying to clean them. I try to keep them clean as possible but usually because of rushing, they usually just get a blow off with the air hose and a wipe down. But now I want to really get them clean. Everywhere. Do yall have any advice as to a cleaning product for these and also is the motors on these tools sealed. Would it hurt to put a water hose to them as long as they get a good drying afterward.
Thanks, sorry for the long question
