ThumbSaver Magnetic Nail Setter

thumbsaver.jpgThis is sort of silly, but probably useful from time to time. It's a handle with a little magnetic shaft on it, meant for assisting with the first stage of hammering, also known as the stage where you're most likely to obliterate your thumb.

We see this tool being useful in cramped spaces, where you can't get your hand to hold the nail. We've all got some trick for this situation, ours is our needle nosed pliers. We've managed to get along fine without the ThumbSaver for this long, so we're not sure there's any justification for cluttering up the tool bag with yet another little hand tool. But you can make your own choice. Also keep in mind that it's magnetic, so stainless steel won't hold.

Bonus pack, including standard and mini sized ($12.99) At Amazon.com

Standard Size ($7.99) at Amazon.com
