While hammering fine nails for trim, I got sick of smashing the hammer into my thumb & finger !

The humble ” Hair Comb” is the most effective method Ive found to anchoring super fine nails in wood trim without smacking your fingers , once secured you just pull away the comb and hammer it home !!

The comb can hold several nail sizes as required via the various bristle gaps!!

Simple but effective !!!

That’s a very clever idea. It sure beats the needle nose pliers that I’ve had to resort to a few times.

That’s a great idea! Since I severed the nerve in the pointer finger of my left hand I have no feeling in most of that finger and it makes holding nails very difficult. I end up smashing my finger or bending the nail in half because I let go of the nail too soon etc. etc. The good news is, when I smash my dead finger I can’t feel the pain, however it bleeds just the same. I am going to have to go and buy a comb! I can’t wait to try this. :)
