The easy way to push panel pins into hardboard, plywood or upholstery. The pin is placed in the brass barrel. A firm push will drive the pin home and a spring action leaves the tool ready for reloading. Simple to use it leaves one hand free to hold the work. No more bruised fingers trying to hold small pins when using a hammer! This particular Ram or Push pin comes from Crown of Sheffield, it features a brass mechanism with a plantation grown hardwood handle.

Doesn't work with veneer pins. Not great with panel pins.Be aware that the heads of veneer pins are too small for this tool: they fit into the brass barrel cockeyed, and so are driven crooked. Panel pins are a better, but can also end up not being driven straight.

Does the jobCertainly more effective than bashing your fingers with a hammer! The quality is reasonable and up to the job, although the barrel has a bit more 'play' than I'd ideally like.
