Slinky Nail Set Is Great for Tight Spots
In the current issue of “Fine Homebuilding,” trim carpenter Kit Camp did a review of this Spring Tools nail set. In this episode of the “Tool Hound,” we’re going to take a closer look.
If you don’t know what these are, then you’re not reading as much “Fine Homebuilding” as most doctors would recommend. But you’re lucky, because we don’t need these today. I’m going to show you how to use this Spring Tools nail set. What this is, is a double-sided nail set, so it still uses two hands: one to hold the nail set, and normally the second hand, which would swing a hammer, is used like this. The cool thing is you can use it in places where you can’t fit a hammer-like, inside an entertainment center or under wainscoting. But my web editor, Dan Morrison, doesn’t believe that this is going to do the job-thinks it’s a gimmick. So, we’re going to pull Dan away from his desk, where he’s busy editing blogs and doing things like that, and we’re going to have him come onto the set here and see if he can sink this nail.
Justin Fink: How’d we do?
Dan Morrison: Not bad.
Justin: Little bit of putty?
Dan: Yep. And we’re done.
Justin: Sweet. Two nail sets for 10 bucks? Every finish carpenter should have one of these.
Dan: Thanks, Tool Hound.
