Beer is for AFTER the work is done!
That's one way to put it."A clean desk/workbench/mancave is the sign of a sick mind!" My work bench doesn't look quite that bad...because the mess is spread out over my other work bench, desks and computer table, in several rooms!
I had a friend come by with his disc cutter (maybe was a Dremel ) and proceeded to cut a screw-point off. After a full 30 sec. and lots of sparks flying, the screw hardly changed ! So we gave up.. I was still getting lacerations when I envisioned the tubing idea, and tried one. It worked and I had what must have been 20 other screw points done in 20 Minutes !Good idea MHinLA:
On my last layout I was too cheap to buy new drywall screws and used what I had they were too long and did a lot of damage to my hands and arms.
The cure was the Dremel tool with a cut of wheel and that solved the problem in several areas.
You probably used the right length screws; that they don't protrude from under anything. But many of us used 1" or 1.5" length which will protrude. My tip is aimed at we who misjudged length needed, and that black drywall screws being very tough to cut can instead get a simple protective sleeve over them within seconds, per each..M, Los AngelesDrywall screws? I use 'em all the time. Sharp points? Nope.
I bought mine new.
