How to Turn Your Hammer Handle into a Nail Pick Up

Have you ever reached into a tool belt pocket only to poke your finger on the wrong end of a nail? Ron offers a great idea to prevent that from happening.

Clamp your hammer into a vice with the handle end up.

Drill a wide but shallow hole in the end of the handle.

Put a drop of hot melt glue right in hole.

Drop in a small circular magnet into the glue.

Now you can let the hammer do all the dirty work, and save your fingers.
