The process of nailing thin platbands
To prevent the nail from splitting thin lumber, it must be tightened. To do this, it is clamped in a screwdriver, and the part is drilled through it in place like a drill.
Then the chuck is untwisted, and the nail reaches the end with a hammer. With this method of installation, the platband will not split, besides, the nail will enter exactly without a crease.
