"I can always use another set of hands when I'm working on wood". LOL
I think this is an excellent idea! Will this work with screws?
Thanks for posting this. Video was well made, and you were clear in your pressentation. Thanks for the info, I appreciate it!
So you are a self professed "made scientist"?...hmmmm is that a scientist working for the mafia?!
Thanks for catching that typo, I appreciate the input.
:) Love a good mad mafia scientist with a sense of humour. Make sure to use those improv drill bits only for good! (the mind shudders!...)
I've chucked precision screwdrivers into my drill for a really small bit, because sometimes those tiny screws are a pain to do by hand... <br>I personally haven't tried the nail as drill bit, but I have heard it works great for PCB drilling, provided you go slow....
If you don't have a drill just hit the nail with a hammer upside down to flatten the point, then flip the nail back, and drive it in. Now you're drilling with a nail, without a drill even!
I use the leftover of the POP rivets, they don't need even to take off the head.
This totally works, I just tried it with a small finish nail. <br> <br>AWESOME!!!!
