Celebrate your tools on March 11th

Are you or a friend a lover of tools? Do you have all sorts of tools that help you if and when the need should arise? Well there’s a holiday just for you. March 11th is National Worship of Tools Day. The little known holiday of unknown origins is a perfect day to give a little love to your existing tools or perhaps find a new tool to love. 

Celebrate by cleaning your tools

Hand tools, especially heavily used ones, get greasy and dirty. While there are some fancy cleaners out there especially designed to clean them, you most likely have something more readily available—Dawn, dishwashing soap. Simply fill up a gallon bucket with hot water and add a teaspoon of Dawn. Using a sponge or dishrag, scrub your tools, then rinse them under running water. Do not soak your tools because it may damage them.

Got rust?

Some experts say you can clean rust from tools, by spraying the rusty surface area with WD-40, scrub with a scouring pad and wipe it clean. For heavily rusted metal, you can use an acid-based rust remover or use white vinegar or Coca-Cola. Simply, soak the tool for 24 hours. They should be rust free at this point. Just rinse the tools and dry. If they’re not rust free, repeat the same steps.

Pro-tip: Make sure you clean grease off the tools (see directions above) before immediately soaking it is vinegar or soda.

It’s electric

Electric tools, such as drills and sanders require a different type of care. You should always store them in their original case to keep them clean as well as dust free but with regular use they can become dusty.

To clean your power tools, use a shop vacuum to suck up the dust and debris. You should also use compressed air to clean out the vents, moving parts etc. For molded plastic, use a damp rag.

mark of the crow
The Crow has been a significant icon to the founder, Christopher Price since childhood. Over the years he has been fascinated with the characteristics of this magnificent bird and began equating it with life and business ethics.

This is how the Crow became the official mascot of Fence Quarter.   The Company always shoots straight, as straight as the Crow flies. We are resourceful, social, and family oriented, all known traits of the Crow. Like the Crow, we remember very well and mourn our own.  The Crow will protect against and ward off competitors “we’ll call them Eagles”, or as in business, larger corporations.

The Crow is iconic and will be easily recognizable, so when you see the Crow on the store shelves, you will know that the Mark of the Crow means an embodiment of a solid, well put together and long lasting products.
