A hammer is one of the tools that we always have at home. Everyone should know the basic method of using a hammer. If there is a pounding job, the first thing that comes to mind is to use a hammer.
But the hammer also has its own tricks in the process of using it, and with it you can get twice the result with half the effort.
Let me give you some tips on how to use a hammer to make it more comfortable for you.
When you need to hit a nail with a hammer, what if there isn't enough room above the nail to put the hammer down? At this time, we can find a flat head screwdriver, put the screwdriver on the nail, and then hit the screwdriver with a hammer, the force of the screwdriver is transferred to the nail, and the nail can be broken.
When driving a nail with a claw, you will also encounter an awkward moment, as shown in the picture below, what should you do?
Simply place something under the hammer, like a small piece of wood, or lean on the side of the hammer to pry a nail to solve this awkward problem.
There is one more problem. When hitting a nail with a hammer, the wood is most often damaged. What to do?
There are several ways to solve this problem, the first nail is roughly before it is almost completely driven in, take another nail and cut off the point.
Then use pointed nails to place them on top of the nail heads in the wood and then hit with the hammer until it's fully embedded in the wood so that the hammer doesn't damage the wood.
The second way is to apply a ring of hot glue under the head of the hammer before hammering in the nail without damaging the wood.
The third way is before hitting the nail. First stick one or two layers of tape on the wood, then hammer in the nails and finally remove the tape. This way the hammer will not damage the wood.
Look at the comparison of the effects of the above methods, are they all good?
In addition, nails are most often hammered in with a hammer. Nails scattered on one side not only pollute the room, but also affect work efficiency. If a magnet is fixed (for example, glued) on the shank of the hammer handle, the nails scattered nearby can be absorbed into the hammer handle, and it is very convenient to take the nails. This is a good idea.
How to use a hammer to take out a small-headed nail. At the moment, the hammer and nails are probably useless. You can use an electric drill to drill a hole on the hammer head. The diameter is slightly larger than the head of the nail. Use this on the head of a hammer. The hole is installed on the head of the nail, and a small nail can be lifted by breaking it to the side.
Finally, I would like to introduce a little trick: what to do when driving a nail with a hammer if there are no other tools at hand to fix the nail? You can find a disposable plastic nail cap and you can avoid the hammer to hand problem. After the nails are broken, pull hard on the plastic cup lid, and the plastic lid can be pulled out.
