Care largely determines the value and durability of tools and implements. All classes of farmers will do well to observe the following instructions: (1) Keep tools and implements under cover when not in use; (2) paint every year or two; (3) keep in good repair; (4) keep a wrench at hand when at work in the field, for all the parts must be tight; (5) clean the metal parts before storing; (6) some tools, as hoes, require frequent sharpening, so it is an advantage to keep a file in the field for this purpose; (7) a place for every tool when not in use saves time and prevents annoyance.
