In late winter we moved from Norfolk, MA to Hampton, NH. Our entire
household was packed in an 18 wheeler on a frigid day and sat outside
overnight in sub-freezing temps. The following morning two drivers
drove the truck to Hampton, NH. The next morning in one of the
frequent snow storms of the winter of 2015, the unpacking was
completed. This part of the east coast was the area that received
114 inches of snow during winter and was often sub-freezing.
Our kitchen items were unpacked first so that we could have meals.
All my tools went into the basement and all remained in boxes placed
side by side and four deep against an outside wall. It did not occur
to me to be concerned about my flex shaft until two weeks ago. My
flex shaft and all other tools were in the unheated 18 wheeler and
then moved to an unheated basement. It took several days to bring
the basement to a reasonable temp and to locate a contractor to build
and vent my studio in our new basement.
I need to use my flex shaft in the next few days. My flex shaft was
carefully packed flat in a box. When I lift the flex shaft from its
box, hang it and begin to use it, should I expect the flex shaft to
have encountered any ill effects from laying flat in a box a few days
in sub freezing temps and several weeks in a cool basement two
Thanks for any responses. MA
