Hammer With Lubricant Compartment

A Portable Tool Drawer

In driving wire nails into hard wood they are not so apt to bend if lubricated with soap. A good way to have the soap always on hand for this purpose is to bore a hole in the end of the hammer handle, as illustrated, and fill it with soap. In driving small brads into hard wood this will be found particularly useful.
