    surprisingly the garage hasn’t been extremely cold yet. No heater required.

    Well winter really hasn’t hit yet so it’s not a true test of winter persay. Wait till the snow really starts flying then you can say whether or not the garage needs insulation

    -17 next Monday, you’ll find out quick enough. :)

    Oh man. I just looked at our forecast. Minus 10C on Monday for us. Hasn’t gone that low yet for a daytime high. Longjohns for sure on Monday.

    Wait till the dead of winter then tell us if your garage is still warm enough to work in? 😉

    Yeah I read about the drop in temp. I’m more concerned for my tools, I’ll just shiver away…

    Don’t worry about any of your Bosch Lithium batteries, they seem to handle the cold really well!

    Think I’m gonna go fetch what tools may be left in the shed including my PB360. It’s just dropping a little too much now for comfort.

    Where are your tools located right now. Still in that unheated garage?

    Some9je had mentioned not long ago when I asked that they don’t like to be frozen. Not sure how valid that may be though.

    I leave my table saw in the shed all winter, didn’t seem to have any adverse effect. there’s no cast iron parts though so I don’t know if moisture will be a problem.

    Also the capacity of the 12v didn’t change after testing/freezing. It was like it was never left outside.

    Andy, If you can keep the tools warm, tonight would be the day to pull them in.
    For the ones that I keep in the garage, I sit sticks of chalk in my tool chest, it helps with any moisture.

    I actually went today and brought all my tools that were in the shed from working in there. Figured the extended fall season this year is over and won’t get back to it for the next few months. Don’t want to find them covered in rust in the spring when I get back out there to continue on with work out there.

    thats the one thing i like about my garage now that i’ve changed the garage door to an insulated one. It keeps the workshop warm, although i may go buy some chalk as well to start doing the same to make sure nothing rusts in the tool chest.

    Oh man I just came back home and it’s freakin slippery on the highway, above freezing daytime and now it’s almost -10, everything is under a thin layer of ice. I can feel the car constantly sliding sideways a minute amount, pucker factor is extremely high to say the least. Must’ve seen 6 or 7 cars in the ditch.

    Next set of winter tires WILL have studs on them.

    I used 6 mil poly to divide my shop in half cars on one side and shop on the other .My wood stove is hooked up and it takes about 15 minutes to warm the shop up to 80 – 90 f .

    Are studded tires legal there? They certainly aren’t here. What were you driving?

    Saw the same. Happy to have good winters (Blizzak) and traction control. Still was only going 80 on the 40 instead of the usual 110 or so
