Make: Tools How They Work and How to Use Them


Some skills are so basic, people take them for granted. Hammering a nail into a piece of wood, for instance. What could be simpler
than that?

Actually, it’s not so simple. There are more than 20 kinds of hammer. Can you recognize the difference between a claw hammer and a cross-peen hammer? And does it matter?

The head of a typical hammer weighs 16 ounces, but you can buy an 8-ounce hammer if you prefer (see Figure I-1). Or how about a 24-ounce hammer? Which type is easier to use? And would a fiberglass handle be better than a wooden handle? How about a steel handle? And when you hold the handle, should you grip it near the head of the hammer or near the end of the handle?

Now consider your choice of a nail. There are common nails, finishing nails, galvanized nails, ring-shank nails, coated nails, decorative nails, and many more.

In the United States, common nails are often sold by weight, and their size may be described in pennies. If you buy a pound of sixpenny nails, would you like to know how big they are and how many will be in the box?
