I once used a pneumatic nail gun to make a hole for a belly-button ring in my thumb. Left the ring out though.You can use the pointy end of a  'church key' to make counter sink holes for woodscrews. But who still has one of those?

Well I have used vice grips for a hammer and countless other things as a hammer. Used my tractor for many things besides its original purpose. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1405974645.154894.jpg

Most power tools can/are used for home surgery. A table saw with a dado blade is excellent for finger nail removal.

While welding today, I used a hammer as a frisbee followed by welding gloves that HELD in the heat..  Does that count?

Floor jack handle as cheater bar, truck tires as tire bead breakers, 1/2 ton Chevy as frame puller, sockets to drive u joints out, floor jack as spring compressor, old brake rotors as a base for anything getting beat by the sledge, sledge hammer for anything else.

Eric

Oh and almost forgot, welder, water soaked rods and 230 amps as rough cutting torch.
