When hammering nails, the occasional spark can be
The Hammer Drama System is a hammer and nail set
is guaranteed to make dramatic sparks every time a nail
driven into a piece of wood.
This is achieved by a
combination of a special coating on the nail heads,
are also coloured like miniature targets according to
of spark required. These include: Fat Red; Electra Blue;
Lurid Yellow; Garish Green; and Flashy White. (other
colours are under development)
Our wonderful chemists
and physicists have ensured that the exact combination
materials and surfaces between the hammer and the
various nail heads create reliable sparks of a consistent
colour and duration.
When using The Hammer Drama System, extreme
must be exercised including the use of googles to protect
the eyes, and the risk of starting a fire is an ever present
danger. (we can supply matching fire-retardant clothing,
and handy extinguishers)
Using The Hammer Drama system, a team of busy roofers
or framers can make a virtually continuous multicoloured

||If the nail-head included a small pit, and if sufficient impact-
sensitive explosive were in the pit, then you would have a sort
of impact driver.

||These exist for nailing into concrete. It's called a Hilti nailer.
||True, but they are an expensive gun type item
requiring the use of explosive cartridges. This idea
is for a simple hammer and nails for use on wood.
||Oh you can use them with a regular old hammer alright, but hold the nail with channel-lock pliers or some other kind of long-ish clampy thing, maybe a big wad of plastecine.
I don't advise it of course, and you will want to do some serious wrist exercises for a while before-hand... or you'll be doing serious physio after-hand. A ram-set is much safer.
||"If you post it, we will bun ..."
||Those exploding hammer performers are practicing
for bashing holes in Trump's wall.
||Well, if there's a god of hammers, it is Thor.
||//practicing for bashing holes in Trump's wall//
Quite the foresight then. This ritual has apparently been practiced annually over the course of some 400 years.
