Question High temp in shop

Hey all, Well last year my workshop was in my basement which stayed around 65-70 all summer give or take.

Since I moved into a metal building out back something just occurred to me the thermo in shop said it was 112 temp in there today and its not even reached the high temps outside it does here in Missouri yet.

I don't plan on using my tools anytime soon until at least august but i am worried the high temps will damage my tools being stored in there in a cabinet, Router/drills/sanders etc is this something I need to be concerned about?

Dont forget to live life for fear of death grasp each day and live it to it full otherwise it is pointless.

I'd only be concerned about rubber/plastic items, covers, wraps, etc. And, I'd be very concerned about those.

don't forget bout spray cans with compressed gases such as paint, ether lacquer I have the same prob here in Washington State the them gets to a easy 105-110 in August I take all my cans in the house in the Summer to prevent bursting and also in the winter for freezing prevention, but other than that have had not a prob with the high temps on tools.
But a Vent at one gabriel end of your building and a vent fan at the other should move the air around to reduce the heat quite a bit.

Look into a solar powered vent.

Amazon.com: Solar Panel Ventilator Vent Fan for House, Home, Roof, Shed, Boat - Mounts on Roofing, Fiberglass, Wood…

Combine it with a simple temperature control (say, 90F closes the circuit), and you'd be all set.

Thanks all for your reply's, Yeah Rick that was one of my first concerns so I got me one of those shallow tote box's and use it without the lid to keep all my cans/sprays etc in and just keep it in the basement easy enough to just carry it out and use what I need then put it back in the basement but wasn't sure If i need to be equally worried about the tools.

Ill have to look into some sort of vent only issue is its metal and extremely thin to say the least.
