Introduction: Need a Washer?
Gone are the days of the brown paper bags from the hardware store with mechanical fastening devices sold by the pound...taken home and placed in a secure jar or labeled bin. Now, we are inundated with bubble packs of fasteners, stored in different fashions.
We all find ourselves in the dilemma of needing a washer with just the right sized hole, not a standard bubble pack 100 piece, but a handful for that one certain project.
Step 1: The One Cent Solution When You Need a Washer
You'll need the following:
A drill bit (sized according to the hole you need)
Step 2: Secure With Clamp
Use the clamp to secure the coin to a piece of waste wood and to your work surface leaving enough room to drill a hole in the center.
Step 3: Drill the Hole
Using the drill, drill a hole in the center of the coin. Check to see if the size is right for your use. If not, use the next size larger drill bit. Re-clamp and re-drill.
