Nail Setters drive your nails directly into wooden surfaces so the head is flush with the work piece. You get a smooth, precise finish that prevents snags or bent nails sticking up.
Use these hand tools with a medium, sized hammer. Place the set up against the nail head and lightly hammer it. The action drives the nail further into the wood in small increments so you can stop as soon as the nail is exactly flush. A nail setter helps when you work with decorative pieces, such as trim, because they allow you to use force only only small nail instead of striking the wood piece directly.
If you work with a variety of nail sizes, a full set is a good investment. A nail punch set includes multiple sizes, ensuring that you have a set that is the same size or slightly smaller than your nails. These tools also come in different head shapes for nails with square heads.
A nail driver with a self-centering design offers the best performance because it has the lowest chance of hanging off the nail and damaging your wood piece below. Multi-driver sets with different-colored handles let you tell at a glance which size you're working with, greatly reducing trial and error. A longer nail set can reach recessed areas where you normally can't hammer. This ensures that all of your nails drive sufficiently to anchor all the pieces that you're nailing together. Sets with cushioned grips protect your hands from the vibrations of repeated hammer impacts.
Nail setters are essential to a woodworker's toolbox. They make your projects look nice and increase the quality of the nail's adhesion. Grab one of these tool sets today and enjoy fantastic end results.
