A rubber mat should be placed on the workbench, and it should always be kept clean.
During disassembly, cloth gloves or rags should not be used. If such items must be used, use articles made of nylon, or use paper towels.
All disassembled parts must be thoroughly cleaned. Metal parts may be cleaned with ordinary detergents, but must be thoroughly air dried.
