Product Description

The Maintenance kit keeps all quality hand-forged stainless steel tools in perfect health no matter the garden soil types and conditions! The Sneeboer tool kit consists of linseed oil, a special sharpener, and wire brush. These are the essential products 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 and cherry handles and is also particularly useful for cleaning and coating carbon steel Sneeboer tools. Use the sharpener¬†to keep an edge on bladed tools like the transplanting trowel, there’s also a multi-use wire brush for effective cleaning and a cloth for the linseed-oil.¬†If you’re planning to purchase a Sneeboer tool or are lucky enough to own a shed full already, get the Sneeboer maintenance kit on your shopping list asap.

Maintenance box for Sneeboer garden tools includes-

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 with a rag for maintenance of the wooden handles.
