using drill to tighten fasteners

If you’ve assembled furniture, you know it can be a slow process to tighten all the fasteners with a hex key wrench, also known as an Allen wrench. I thought I would introduce a little power with a drill.

Start by securing the hex key wrench in a vise and cutting off the shorter end of the wrench with a hacksaw or grinder.

Chuck the straight piece of wrench in a drill and set the torque on the lowest setting, so it will slip instead of damaging the piece or fastener.

Watch the video for details.
