Spring Tools 32R02-1 Combination Center Punch and 2/32-Inch Nail Set

spring_tools_nail_set.jpgWe were at the hardware store the other day and saw a display of these things. The only thing odd was that the display was entirely empty. The guys behind the counter said they've never seen anything sell so fast and that contractors were buying them hand over fist. So there's either a massive curiosity factor here or one guy got one and it worked great and then everyone else on the site suddenly needed one and then each of those guys told two of their friends and then...empty display.

Regardless of how it got so popular, it looks like an interesting item and for under $10, probably something worth having in the tool box. The premise is 3rd grade simple, instead of hitting the end to set the nail head, just pull the spring-loaded back half of the tool and let go. There's an Amazon review that says it takes a few hits with hardwoods.

These are awesome for finish work. It is much more controllable than traditional nail sets. I tried to use mine on framing nails and messed up the larger side, so it's best to use a regular set for large nails.
