Arthritis Month In The Workshop

Magnetic pick up tool for collecting small items instead of pinching them between two fingers.May is Arthritis month because arthritis has to be taken seriously. It’s America’s primary cause of disability and can be painful, debilitating and costly.  Disability Work Tools and the Arthritis Foundation have parallel goals of improving daily life for people with arthritis.  There are many ways to adapt tools and work methods for mechanics, welders and fabricators to do their work with less pain in spite of arthritic hands and arms.
