How To Lubricate Screws To Make Them Easier To Drive In
If you need to drive a screw by hand, the friction between the screw and the timber often causes a lot of resistance and makes it difficult to get the screw all the way in. It’s also time consuming and takes a lot of effort, which can make a simple assembly job take a lot longer than expected.
Work smarter, not harder with this clever tip. Simply lubricate the screw before driving it in and it will make the process much easier.
We used beeswax polish to lubricate this screw, but you can also use candle wax, petroleum jelly or silicone spray lubricant.
