Hand Tools

This category includes tools used by an individual operator to conduct maintenance on a machine or other system in the fabricating process. Hand tools used for maintenance commonly fall into four categories based on task, including tools for: periodic maintenance (cleaning, lubrication, tightening screws, visual inspections, etc.), preventative maintenance (maintenance used to sustain a specific level of service), corrective maintenance (repairing defects found in a system), and predictive maintenance (testing machines or parts for variations in temperature, vibration, power consumption, etc.). Hand tools include sockets and ratchets, saws, wrenches, screwdrivers, files, plyers, wire cutters, hammers, pry bars, knives, etc.
