My woodworking has been at a standstill during the winter months. The main reasons for that are
- I no longer have stable surfaces to work with since I work outside
- I need to wear warm clothing which prevents me from safely using many power tools
As of now though the temperature is hovering around freezing. Still cold but I thought about using my router real quick to clean up some 2x4 name blocks I am making for kids. I could move my router table to the end of my deck, which is flat, and run that for a couple of minutes easily.
I have a problem with that idea though. The cold is not the best friend of electronics and tools. I worry that it might be too brittle and shatter. While that might not be a certainty I think I am right to be cautious about this.
What can I do to safely work in colder temperatures outdoors?
