Shop Tip - Melting Snow

I frequently have to thaw out machines that are packed full of snow before I can work on them.  When the snow melts the water makes a big mess on the shop floor.

To avoid most of the mess I like to put a piece of construction type plastic sheeting under the machine.  I then roll the edges up to form a sort of dam and clamp the edges to the machine or some other type of support.  When the snow melts it is all contained on the plastic.  I then use a wet/dry type shop vac to suck up the water.
