15 Ways To Not Smash Your Fingers With a Hammer

youtube

After comprehensive research on this topic including visiting the Hammer Museum in Alaska, we present you with these 15 tips. We systematically analyzed the processes and the components involved. For the first few tips we have invented, I guarantee you have never seen anything like these before.

Because there are many different sizes of nails, people with different hand-eye coordination capabilities, different hardness of surfaces, different construction environments, some of these tips may be more useful than others. You don’t need to master all of the tricks, you just need to identify your own problems and choose the best one or the cheapest one to suit your own situation.

Of course, if you never use a hammer, and always hire someone else to do your repairs and remodeling, you will never smash your fingers. Short of that (or having someone else hold the nail while you wield the hammer:) ) , the more hammers you use, the greater the likelihood of injury, especially when you are tired. Thus a good practice is to always be alert, have consistent execution, and constantly remind yourself about sound posture and correct process. Good luck to your fingers.
