I gotta admit, ya got me on that one.
Fair point Stepford. Always use the fasteners stipulated by the local code.
Here's an answer to 448747's comment. Yes, a drill with a wire-wheel brush or cup brush can accomplish some of the same tasks as Mike Guertin's tip shown in this video. But there are differences. Instead of a circular motion, this has a linear, back-and-forth action. Because of the shape of the tool, you can get it into places that a drill would have a hard time reaching. For example, brushing off the creosote build up in a fireplace. You could also use it to texture wood. The variety of wire-brush attachments offers a lot of possibilities for imaginative problem solvers--narrow, hard-to-reach crevices that need wire brushing become easier to reach. I see fewer and fewer corded drills on job sites these days, and there is always a reciprocating saw.
excellent tip PortsMouth. I'm going to draw this one up for the column in the magazine. Thanks for sending it.
