after reading the nail gun story on here, ive got a little related story that i can add.
I am a part time carpenter – used to do it as a living but now im getting on a bit (62!) i only do bits and pieces for friends and family.
Anyway I got a nice new nail gun for Christmas from my daughters, it was a couple of years back. So Boxing Day morning i was out in the shed playing with my new job. I pinned a line of staples into a piece of wood which was great, but then i thought “that’s actually a nice bit of wood” so i decided to take them back out.
My tools were in the van so i had no pliers. I did however have a nice wood chisel that would do the job.
Which was great for the first couple. but then i missed one and managed to add a 3 inch gash to the index finger on my other hand! which was fun in A&E on Boxing Day…
right tool for the job? it seems i was indeed!
