I like to keep a protective cover on all my tools that tend to have things placed on them. i like to use large cardboard sheets that I remove from cardboard boxes that contain large items like TVs, etc. These also "breath" (so-to-speak) in that they don't trap moisture on the table surface. These, combined with Johnson's Paste Wax, work well. The cardboard sheets also work well as "lay-downs" whenever I need to crawl under the car, or whatever
Thoughts entering one's mind need not exit one's mouth!
As I age my memory fades .... and that's a load off my mind!
"We Live In The Land Of The Free, Only Because Of The Brave"
“The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living."
"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." Winston Churchill
