Tip for Storing Tool Instruction Manuals

By: Joe Truini

Every tool comes with an instruction manual. Now, most of us don’t read the instruction manual, even though we probably should. But it’s still a good idea to save them, especially for tools you don’t use that often, or that are complicated.

But where do you store the manuals so you can find them? Here’s one way. Put each manual in a ziplock bag, and cut out a part of the packaging so you can tell which manual is in each bag. To keep these readily accessible, hang them on a nail, right over the work bench.
