d. Care of thread chasers. Never attempt to sharpen thread chasers yourself
as this is a highly specialized cutting process and involves precision work on hard
tool steel of a shape altogether not suited for simple stroking on an oilstone.
Store chasers carefully when not in use. Coat with a light film of oil and case
individually so that the cutting edges do not touch other metal. For long periods
of storage, coat chasers with a rust-preventive compound and store in a dry place.
15. SAFETY. Because of high pressures and temperatures found in some types
of equipment extreme caution must be taken. A few safety rules are:
a. Shut off all steam lines and remove pressure before attempting maintenance.
b. Allow lines to cool before working on them.
c. Insulate exposed steam lines within easy reach of personnel to prevent
d. Do not permit smoking in the area when installing or repairing fuel lines.
e. Test all lines before use.
