Use a Framing Nailer the Right Way

Ready to make a wooden sheathing to hide all your chocolates and desserts? The framing nailer got you covered!

What is it?

Usually interchanged with a finishing nailer, a framing nailer is used for large wood projects like fence building, wood siding, and deck building.

How should I use it?

To fire your nailer, first position the cylinder and nail tip. Align them in the direction you wish the nail to shoot.

Before pulling the trigger, press the framing nailer into the wood to push the nail tip. The nailer must fire one nail into the wood with the head slightly depressed (around 1/8-inch). If you need the nail to sink into the wood a bit more or a bit less, you can do that by adjusting the depth adjustment on your framing nailer.

How can I ensure my safety?

Always wear the appropriate clothes, recommended safety glasses, and hearing protection. Remember, framing nailers can be somewhat loud. Treat your nailer the way you treat other power tools.

Don’t ignore the safety features of your framing nailer. Always keep the nail tip of the nailer; never remove or disable it in an attempt to increase speed. If you do so, your nailer would be similar to a dangerous gun without a safety. Mind you; a framing nail has the power to be as risky as a bullet.

Also, avoid pulling the nail tip back using one hand while firing with your other hand. This is a horrible idea because nail guns can misfire. I know you value your hands as much as I value mine, so please don’t try this stunt.

Remember These When Eating Chocolates

Who doesn’t love to eat chocolates?

You see, chocolates are not just deemed comfort food for any reason. They’re the kind of food that literally makes a person happy by making one’s body release a significant number of endorphins – or what most people refer as happy hormones, which also helps improve one’s tolerance to pain and other agonizing feelings. They’re also the kind of food that basically makes a person active by making one’s body release a significant number of polyphenols – or what most people refer as reducing agents, which also helps lower one’s risks of having serious diseases like cancer.

But just like every other kind of food we eat, remember these when eating chocolates:

Go for the dark side.

And no, it doesn’t mean crossing to the dark side like in Star Wars. But yes, it means going for the dark side – the healthiest side, even – of chocolate that is in the glorious form of dark chocolate. As bitter as it can be however, it’s packed with more nutrients than any other kinds of chocolate – making it a force to reckon with if you’re truly looking to keep yourself healthy and fit.

Swiss and consume.

And no, it doesn’t mean swishing and flicking like in Harry Potter. But yes, it means Swissing and consuming – Swiss chocolate ice cream, even – chocolate like never before. This is because Swiss chocolates have a smoother texture than any other kinds of milk chocolate. And even though it’s only creamier due to higher milk content and increased sugar content, it’s still the kind of chocolate that the next generation would love to continue producing due to its richness.

P.S. Just don’t Swiss and consume more than usual, okay? Okay.
