Com: idea : 1lame, get a real rubber mallet
2 lame, not much good if the nail is driven all the way in.
3 really lame... Its called a tool belt.
4 again, lame. Get some end cutters and snip the shank off.
5 good way to bust the handle on your screwdriver. Use the right tool for the job, in this case, use a scrap of wood.
6 Is a joke. If you really knew how to swing a hammer, those nails being held by a rubber band would be flying across the room.
SWING that hammer like a man!
You don't "Tappy tap tap" them. If you think you might smash your fingers you can hold the nail with any number of things like a pair of needle nose pliers, a clothes pin,
the chopsticks you just used to finish up the number 8 combo from China Garden.
You should be able to pound those wimpy little nails into that board with 3 strikes easily..
Com: Jason cougar : Obviously you need a Mexican your trying to reinvent the hammer non of the tactics are worth the time using the hammer as designed will beat all these ideas to hell in speed.
Com: lmalino : Anyone who found these educational , for their own good, shouldn't be using a hammer These are all more cumbersome ways of doing those tasks..
