Step 1: Carpenters Joist Hanger Dilema
as a carpenter ive had the pleasure of nailing alot of joist hangers.alot of the time another framing member is in the way and its almost impossible to get at every joist hanger nail hole.
thats where the pea shooter comes in handy
Step 2: Where Can I Get One?
ive never seen one in any tool catalogs or any hardware stores
i think because its so easy to make yourself
the closest thing is a gutter punch
Step 3: Materials List
a 12" long pipe with a inside diameter of 3/8"
a 16"steel rod with a outside diameter of 1/4"
some hocky tape
Step 4: Tools List
Step 5: Construction Steps
cut pipe to 12"
cut rod to 16"
use file to get rid of any burs from cutting
stick rod inside pipe
use hocky tape to make a handle on pipe to hold onto
Step 6: How to Use
its very easy to use
simply put nail in pipe leaving point sticking out
get nail to where it needs to be nailed in
then hit rod thats sticking out of other end of pipe with a hammer.
you can drill a hole in framing to get pea shooter to where you want
