I have tools and golf clubs in my garage and they
I don't know if you have been having higher then normal humidity where you live but one thing I have done for years that is inexpensive and easy is to wipe down your tools and golf clubs when not in use then spray them with WD-40.On my tools that hang in my shop I just spray them and leave the spray on. The tools that go in my tool boxes I spray and wipe lightly then put them on paper towel liners in drawers.I have my shop in a very old building with no heat unless I'm in it and have my stove burning so my tools are subject to extreme weather conditions. I do the same thing with power tool except being careful not to get any on the motors. I spray the table,blades and fence and mitre guide on my table saw and table,supportpole,gears and spindle on drill press and leave it on. It collect a bit more dust but cleans up easy.
The main ingredient in WD-40 is fish oil so it works great at displacing water and preventing rust. Thank you.

Stanley 10-788 how to change blade
Push the top metal button all the way foward as if pushing the blade out to it's (farthest) 3rd setting. Then push foward and down one more time which locks the mechanism down. Push and hold the yellow side button as you insert the blade. When the blade locks in all you have to do is release the yellow button and return the top slide to it is fully retracted home. The blade is loaded

How do I properly use a hand swaging tool for 3.2mm dia wire rope
they do make swagginhg tools that are fixed onto the yoke of a flaring kit. to hand swag, you should use the block of the flaring kit to hold your tubing. if you are swagging half inch tubing, hold the tubing up the diameter of the tube plus one eighth of an inch. tighten down the nut opposite the tube first then the closest one. this will keep the tubing from slipping.
Then hit it squarely with a hammer and it will bottom out at the flaring block. I would ease up on that last stroke to keep from cracking the tubing

Better Cables Should I buy them
They always try to sell you better cables but some are good while others are worthless when it comes to cables any type of Digital cable is fine, so HDMI, DVI, Digital Fiber Optic(also called TosLink) will work a $20 HDMI vs a $1000 HDMI will have no difference any anyone who tells you anything else either is trying to sell you a cable or does not know what they are talking about, now if you have equipment and the power cable is removable there is nothing wrong with investing in a nice heavy shielded power cable because the factory cables are shielded but I have seen the produce audio noise I can hear and video noise I can see, also any analog cables are fine to upgrade because good speaker cable is something I could hear the difference so always compare speakers cables to your inexpensive and if you can't hear a difference then return them, in the business we refer to the compare of 2 things as to A and B them. Surge suppressors are great because I much rather that my Panamax surge suppressor gives its life than any of my equipment but now surge suppressors also have Clean Power and what that does is take the small surgers the happen all day everyday out, that is why somebody gets home and they go to turn the TV on and it won't come on, well if you just have some cheap suppressor from Walmart etc the dirty power over time has destroyed the TV so yes clean power is a great thing, check out www.panamax.com for great products and www.soundadvice.com for everything cool as heck, they have everything you need for great sound. Remember if you can hear the difference then return it...
