How to Store a Calculator in Your Workshop

By: Joe Truini

Having a calculator in your workshop is great for figuring measurement, but over time dust and grime can become lodged inside the calculator and cause it to malfunction. To prevent this from happening, store the calculator in a sealable, clear food storage bag.

You can operate the calculator through the bag without ever having to open it to keep dirt out of the calculator. Putting a binder clip on the plastic bag will allow you to hang the calculator on the wall or pegboard for easy display and use.
