    I think this is an excellent idea! Will this work with screws?

    :) 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...
    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.
