A problem for those in northern climates is the constant hassle of moving tools from garage to basement in the fall and back again in spring. Newer roll-away storage chests, project centers, utility carts, and wheeled tool boxes provide portable storage to make the job easy. Rolling tool carts with extendable handles like carry-on luggage also let you divide tools according to the project and wheel right to the job.
If you plan to refurbish a major shop tool or other equipment, take some photos before you start. They possibly can save you some head-scratching during the reassembly process. Take pictures from a number of angles, and take close-ups of areas where you think you might have some questions later. The more complex the machine, the more photos you should take.
