Proper maintenance extends the useful life of equipment and ensures that the
equipment is in an optimum state of readiness. It is aggravating to need a
piece of equipment for a rush job and discover that you have to clean it up
before you can use it.
The cleaner you keep your equipment, the better off you are. Specific
maintenance requirements for particular pieces of equipment should appear
near the equipment to which they pertain. In general, keep debris away nom
keyboards and keys. Clean monitors and mirrors periodically. Do not allow
food and especially drink near equipment and keyboards.
Do not move equipment around the shop excessively. Protect equipment
from unnecessary jarring and secure for sea before getting under way.
