Today my mechanic told me I drive him crazy when I work on stuff and put the tools back lol His reasoning was I don't clean the tools off with a rag before tossing them in the tool cabinet. I figure hey if it has oil and grease on it they will never rust is my thinking. Does anyone else just toss there tools in the tool box cabinet whatever ? or clean them off each use?

We don't always clean them, but they really should be, when you don't after a while everything you touch is covered in grease.

I'm with your mechanic 100%. I never put a greasy tool back in my box and expect the same from anyone who uses them. I consider that a rookie move.

I clean everthing before it goes back in the box in the spot it came out of. I wait to clean em all at once when I'm done. :tiphat:

I was taught by my dad and grandpa to take care of my tools and keep everything clean including my work area. They always said it was a reflection of the quality of work you do.
