ask this old house
My father, Alberic, a carpenter for many years, taught me this tip that comes in handy on many occasions. Whenever I’m having a hard time driving a screw, I insert its tip into wax and, voila, it practically slides in. Dad stored his wax in an inch-deep pocket drilled in the end of his hammer handle, so it was always right there when he needed it.
