How to put square peg in round hole on metal door?
Mounting a security bar on basement fire door. Instructions call for 5/16" hole to be drilled, then with a hammer you pound a hexagonal nut into the hole. Instructions say two or three hits with hammer will do it. I pounded until I was tired but canÂt get the nut to go through the hole. I want a tight fit. Do I need a sledgehammer?
A separate problem: painted this same door with Hammerite. That paint was difficult to use! I brushed it on the trim and rolled it on the door. As it dried, I saw drips on the trim and roller marks on the door. Overall, I'd give my end result a C+. Any tips on using Hammerite? (the paint that gives the hammered finish).
