Small as your nail status is, but unexpected beauty you can see in your nail. No matter which purpose you do, to beautify your own nails or to open a manicure or pedicure salon in the street, nail drill is a necessary for your happy ending.
A nail drill is a tool that is used to quickly and effectively drive nails into building materials. The key to getting desired results from your use of a nail drill is consistent spacing of the nails. Proper handling of the nail drill is also important. Here I would like to share with you the proper way to use nail drills.
First of all, assemble your tools and supplies. You will need your nail drill and the appropriate nails. Also, be sure that your work area is level and clean.
Secondly, read the manufacturer's directions that accompanied the nail drill. This will help you determine what type of nails that you need, and any additional safety equipment, you always should use safety goggles. It will also tell you exactly how to load the nails into the drill. Most of time, in the manual, you can find the main features of your nail drill saving for the specification. Take the nail drills from hootoo.com as an example, the main features can be listed as follow:
Elegant layout, bright-colored design plus robust modeling
Continuous and variable speed control
Manual or Foot Brake control over on/off switch
Low noise, vibration or heat after long hours of operation, ensuring smooth operation
Ergonomic design, easy operation rendering low work fatigue
Useful handpiece for nail file at beauty salons
Forward/ Reverse operation switch
Automatic over-voltage, over-current and overload protection system
Thirdly, place marks on the piece of material you are about to nail. You can do this using the carpenter's pencil. These marks will indicate the desired spacing for the nails. Generally, you should place the nails at equal increments apart. For example, if you will be placing nails at 16 inches on center, then you place a nail in the center of the piece of material being nailed, and then 16 inches apart on either side until you reach the edge of the piece of material. To make these measurements ahead of time, mark them with the carpenter's pencil.
Fourthly, connect the nail drill to the air compressor with an air hose. The air compressor should be turned to the MAP (maximum allowable pressure) setting, usually 120 lbs. Find the MAP for your specific nail drill in the instruction manual.
Fifthly, place the nail drill over the mark you made on the wood. Wear your safety goggles and have a firm grip on the materials you are nailing. It may help to work with a partner.
Sixthly, release the safety mechanism. Do this carefully. You should again refer to the instructions to determine exactly how to do this on your particular model. Never release this mechanism until you are prepared to nail.
Seventhly, pull the trigger on the nail drill to release the nail. Continue to follow this step over every mark you made on the piece being joined.
