What would it be?

Looking for a small, lightweight possibly cordless tool to drill small holes for finishing nails and other delicate nailing jobs. I break 1/16 dia. bits alot because the cordless drill is too slow and my handling is too wobbly. I have a gas powered finish nailer but I find it splits oak trim. Leo

Sounds like a nail spinner would do the trick. I have one, works nicely. I'm not sure if it would handle 1/16" nails or if there are different size spinners.

Hope this helps,

Anthony

Trim the head of your finish nail and chuck it in your drill, then use it to dril your holes. Use a good finish nail to complete the job.

Try this, if you are hand hammering in finish nails: Turn the nail point up, on a hard surface, and dull the tip of the nail. Don't wail away on it, and bend the nail, just tap, and dull the tip flat. The flat surface will tear the wood fibers just enough to let the nail go in without splitting.

Excellent tip!! Not many people know to use this method. I have used it for years and it actually kept me in a job for a while as I was the only guy that could get some chair rail installed without cracking it all over.

You might want to try a Dremel tool. They come corded or cordless. It would have a lot less "leverage" & weight than a standard drill which could help in avoiding broken bits.

Smaller the bit the higher the speed is what I was told, so I would think any cheap 2500 RPM drill would be appropriate since you wouldn't need a lot of power.

Hey IaLeo have I got a deal for you. Go to sears and ask for a nail spinner, chuck that in your drill, stick the finnish nail in the spinner and push. It leaves it about 1/4 inch up. Wack it with the hammer and set it. Done. They used to be under $5, and were made by Vermont. Dan

You don't mention what guage nailer you have, is it a finish nailer or brad nailer? Years ago I had the same problem and bought a brad nailer for smaller work. All window and door casing gets nailed with brads on the thin side and finish nails on outside. Caution a nailer that shoots brads and narrow crown staples has a larger anvil that makes a bigger hole and splits the wood. Since I have a bunch of Dewalt cordless tools I have the 18 volt finish nailer and brad nailer and love them and so do my guys no body uses a pneumatic gun if the Dewalts are around. Kind of tics me off when I gotta go looking for my own tools.

Just cut the head off the size nail Your using
and chuck that in the drill.
It won"t break, maybe bend.
Then just chuck up another one.
Good Luck with Your project.

Old fashioned "Yankee" push drill. Probably not find one in any store.
