It is very important and effective for your work safety to use protective clothes, gloves and protective glasses etc. for your work with your hand tools. After use provided that you clean your hand tools with alcohol, the joint places should be greased and they should be kept in the cabinet so that you can use it for long years.
Chisels, point punchers, strap punchers and pin punchers all should be used in accordance with their uses, they should not be used as crowbars.
After extremely tightened pins are greased, the pin punchers should be removed with pin punchers. These kinds of hand tools are hardened by various kinds of thermal processes. While using these appliances, in time abrasion occurs in the edge parts (atrophy occurs). It is not advisable to use sand paper or stoning process that will cause lack of hardness in the edge parts. If application is needed, please make stoning or sand paper process by using coolant fluid.
For any trouble that should not be lived, while using clinch gun, a guidebook suitable with the clinch gun should be used.
If the clinch is chosen big, it cannot hold the clinch gun otherwise, it will be pinched in between the chins that hold the clinch. For these kinds of problems to be prevented, a guide suitable with the clinch should be chosen.
The drawers of the wheeled fix cabinets should be closed while carrying it.
The drawers of the wheeled fix cabinets should be closed while carrying it. As the wheeled fix cabinets are with roller, the drawers can be opened while carrying and cause the cabinet to be fallen down.
Related to the endurance of the most used hand tools, the fork, star and combined keys against the required load were given in the TSE and DIN norms. IZELTAŞ also makes its production in that way. In case the values increased more than stated in the standards, the breakdown of hand tools is high in possibility. Another situation that should be considered is, with metric key metric screwdrivers, with SAE key, SAE screwdrivers should be used.
Though they would be in the similar sizes, metric screws should not be used with SAE screws and SAE keys. Otherwise due to the reason that the key cannot hold the wrench (or the screws) well, it can be slide. As a result of sliding the screws or the key would be deformed. When the screws are damaged, although it is used with the appropriate key then, it will cause sliding again.
The connection will become no detachable. For that reason, before you use the key, if the wrench-screws to be removed or clutched are metric, be sure the key is metric, as well.
There are several points that should be careful while using the appliances in the group of the pipe key used by the plumbers mostly. Before the load is applied, the key should be arranged with the help of the bolt of the setting till the connection element is clutched completely that would be removed or clutched.
When the load is applied, the edge of the key is required to hold the part from its widest point so that it will not be slide. While using these kinds of appliances, we should work not by pushing the key, by pulling it towards us. Also working by fitting elongation arms to the handle parts like pipes would shorten its physical life. Again one of the conditions that shorten its physical life is working by striking with appliances like hammer. Instead off Fitting pipes or using by striking with a hammer, to release the connection that is rusty and tight, greasing and using rusty remover would be much more suitable.
In any case from the two appliances the harder one always marks up, cuts or deforms the one that is softer. This situation is especially seen in hammers.
The surface part of the hammers is hardened with induction and it is 52-54 HRC. In accordance with that, if the hammer is used with materials harder than that, it is deformed. Also the edge, corner parts of the hammer should not be exposed to strokes. When the hammer is used, by time there becomes blighter, these should be cleaned with stoning in order that they do not cause any work accidents. During the stoning, in order not to affect the hardness, coolant fluid should be used.
While cutting the wires with wire cutter, pliers that are sharp, do not strike on the handle or chap parts with a hammer and the appliance should not be used as a hammer. These appliances as defined in their standards, are produced from composed steel by hardening in thermal processes. Because they are hard, they can be broken or cause work accidents.
The sharp points of these kinds of appliances are in the hardness of 57-58 HRC and should be used under 50 HRC hardness. These are materials like copper, aluminum and construction wire. If it is used to cut hard steel wires, healthy use guarantee period ends up in a shorter time. For cutting the hard steel wires, using wire cutting scissors is much more convenient.
The screwdrivers, appropriated to its aim of use, to increase the endurance in the points; they are produced with hardening with thermal procedures from composed steel with vanadium. That high hardness value that prevents the abrasion in some point causes to breaks when the screwdrivers are exposed to bending. For that reason do not use your screwdrivers as chisel or crowbar. The breaks that can be resulted can form undesirable work accidents, injuries and loss of work.
Again one of the points that should be careful in the use of the screwdrivers is the fact that the screwdrivers should be used with the suitable screw. Straight, star or posi-drive screwdrivers should be placed in the edge of the screws and they should be clutched from the widest surface. Otherwise, as the clutching surface (touch surface) will be narrow, only the edge part of the screwdriver is loaded and deformed. Though the star screwdriver and posi-drive edged screwdriver; if the posi-drive screwdriver is used with the star headed screwdriver, the point of the screwdriver will be deformed, as it will not fit in it. While using these appliances, and while using these appliances, forcing them by using elongation from the circle of its handle, as it will go over the value from its endurance, the screwdriver is broken and deformed.
