Product Description

The Maintenance Tool kit keeps all quality hand-forged stainless steel tools in perfect health no matter the garden soil types and conditions!

The Sneeboer maintenance kit consists of linseed oil, a whetstone, storage tin and wire brush, and is essential for keeping your Sneeboer tools in tip-top condition – from the top of the handle to the tip of the blade.

The oil is used for wiping ash handles and is also particularly useful for cleaning and coating carbon steel Sneeboer tools. Use the whetstone to keep an edge on bladed tools like the transplanting trowel, there’s also a multi-use wire brush for effective cleaning and a tin for storing the linseed-oil soaked cloth. If you’re planning to purchase a Sneeboer tool or are lucky enough to own a shed full already, get the Sneeboer maintenance tool on your shopping list asap.

Maintenance box for Sneeboer garden tools.

A firm box filled with a wire brush, for brushing off the sand from the tool. A whetstone made from silicon-carbide (with a rough side and a fine side) to sharpen your tools with water. The whetstone has a very rough granular base which makes it suitable for sharpening stainless steel.

Before sharpening the tool, place the whetstone under water for about 10 minutes. Make sure that when sharpening the tool you always have a layer of water between the whetstone and the tool.

Never use an electrical whetstone to sharpen your garden tool. Because of the heat that is produced working with an electrical tool the steel will be impaired considerably.

The box also contains a bottle of linseed oil for maintenance of the wooden handles. And a storage tin with a rag which can be used for the linseed oil. After use you can store the rag in the storage tin. The tin is not only to safely store the rag but also to make sure the rag doesn’t dry up.
