Temporary nail to hold drywall; what to do with it?


You're drywalling a basement with a screwdriver???
That's nuttier than squirrel turds.
How about getting a phillips screw tip and putting it in an electric drill...you or your hubby have a drill, right? The tip and holder cost about $3.00

Temporary nail to hold drywall; what to do with it?


I have a power drill and I have all kinds of drill bits, but I am finding that I have to drill pilot holes because my ceiling joists are really hard to screw into with the power drill.

Also, if I use the power drill I seem to be ripping the paper quite often. So I figure just keep the bit on the power drill to drill the pilot holes and use the hand screwdriver to put the screw in.

No big deal. I'm good with it.

(I already have established that I am crazy a long time ago. )

I did all the framing in my basement by hand screwing all the studs.

All 1,600 screws in by hand.

(I'll need a manicure after )
