Proper Bearing Handling and Storage with SKF Bearings” provides the viewer guidelines on how to get the most out of their bearings before they are even installed. The video can now be seen on the MiHow2 channel, under the Tom’s Toolbox heading. 

“Properly storing bearings helps to ensure that your investment pays off,” said Randy Breaux, Motion Industries’ Senior Vice President, Southern U.S. Operations, Corporate Marketing and Strategic Planning.  “Proper storage extends the life of the bearing, and therefore reduces downtime.”

Tom’s Toolbox embodies the “how-to” format but in shorter time snippets. In the series, the witty and always informative host Tom Clark demonstrates a broad range of solutions designed to save viewers money and time, and/or keep safe on the job. Each Tom’s Toolbox video short is filmed in a workshop setting or an appropriate off-site setting. The series is also available for viewing via Facebook and YouTube. Additional Tom’s Toolbox videos are scheduled to be posted in coming weeks.
