If you are installing new shop lights or positioning a workbench in your shop, a simple test can help you find the position for best illumination. Hold a pencil or dowel vertically, then check for shadows. Reposition your set-up to reduce shadows as needed. If you have strong shadows on one or more sides, consider buying more lights.
Head to the shed and do a ” tool inventory ” to make sure you have all the items you’ll need in the months ahead. Inspect the tools you already have. For example, test your hoses for leaks.
