Basic Upholstery Tools–To Hammer Nails
Upholstery fabric is often fastened to the piece with tacks, nails, or brads. The right hammer can help you do this job more effectively.
A magnetic upholstery hammer has a narrow head to hammer tacks without smashing them. The opposite end of the head is magnetic to pick of nails, and tacks. The side of the head is flat and can be used to flatten old nails which can’t be removed
A nail holder is a nice extra which can help you hammer tacks and nails accurately and safely. Some nail holders have up to five evenly spaced slots to help you accurately place the nails. Other nail holders are magnetic.
