Nick And Lones Hammer Challenge II Entry Thread


Happy New Year all!

Now that it's official, let's get the ball rolling.

This thread is to be used for video entries, as well as commentary.

As previously discussed, there will be several categories in this years challenge.

Theatrical Production

Raw Skilz

Trick/Specialty


* ALSO, WE WILL BE ADDING A CATEGORY FOR THE YOUNGSTERS THIS YEAR!!!

Get to work guys and gals.


This is meant to be fun and the challenge is to make a video and get it posted.

Last year was a lot of fun. Let's get more guys involved this year.

Anyone who needs technical assistance can PM me. If I can't help, I'll find someone who can.

This thread will remain open until at least February 1. According to participation, it could remain open longer.

After closing, the videos will be copied to polling threads in their appropriate categories.

Who's going to lead it off this year?

The choice is yours.

Last year the common(pun intended) choice seemed to be 16D Sinkers, but weren't available above the Canada border.

Type of nail isn't important. Whether it's roofing, drywall, sheathing or framing, or even banging wire staples with a pair of dikes, or nailing down Hardi-backer, this challenge is intended to bring the CT community together for some creative fun and to give folks a chance to showcase their talent. If you can't bang nails, juggle a few hammers.

I like it.

Just to be fair, as was the case last year, multiple entries are allowed as the competition thickens.

UPDATE!!!

There's been a new category added for the children this year.

If your kids want to get involved, put a hammer in their hands.

Well, unless you're going to beat nails in with the cap, it won't do you much good in the Hammer Challenge.

BTW, your wife sounds like a good woman.

I'd do it with my Hitachi. Maybe not I don't want to buy a new one.

Now I am going to have to let a few pages pass. I don't want her to see this. I will never hear the end of it.

Yeah, any hammer called (something) "weld" sounds like it could go bad.
