#08 “Workshop Heating, Condensation, and Rust”
Watch the video above for this week’s, I Get Email.
“In a future installment, I’d like to see you address some of the issues in dealing with an unheated workshop (fall/winter is coming). What are the concerns with tools? Is there long term damage to the tools when the weather gets cold? When working on a project(s), what are challenges with the wood and suggestions for over coming them, rather than waiting for spring. And finally, suggestions for heating the shop. Pro and cons for various options.”
An insulation and sealed shop will definitely help keep tools protected in different seasons. I would look for portable heating and cooling solutions if a fixed unit isn’t an option. Below are a few links to help with tool protection in the event you can’t control your shop climate.
