Magnetic Brad SupportComments (0)
This article is from Issue 45 of Woodcraft Magazine.
Holding small brads for
hand-nailing can be a bruising experience. In an effort to find something to
keep my fingers out of harm’s way, I started digging through my miscellaneous
hardware. When I came across an old magnetic catch that had fallen apart, I
knew I had found the answer. In this type of common catch, the rectangular
magnet has notched corners, into which a brad can nestle standing up. Holding
the magnet instead of the brad keeps your fingers safe during those first few hammer
taps. If you don’t have this type of catch on hand, you can use any relatively
thick magnet by filing a notch into it.
