So my wife does string art and I’m looking for a way to help semi-automate some of the manual processes she has me doing, which is pilot holes and nailing. I figured this machine might help.
Just for some context, I’ll layout this process.
First is a pattern (font, picture, design) she puts down on the wood, then she nails a nail every .5 inches (about 1/2 of nail sticking out) -------|----------|-----------|-------- something to this effect. Then she wraps thread around the nails and fills in the pattern/Font. What I want to do, at the very least, is to put a board on the machine, pick a design and have it drill a hole in specific spots. Basically “outline” the pattern in pilot holes. The next part, which I don’t know if its do-able, is to push a nail in to the wood (with or without pilot holes). Obviously this will be difficult because there is no way to load the nails which are 3/4" 18 Ga.
Any advice or ideas would be appreciated.
