Brights helps to make Ladies’ DIY classes possible
Brights Hardware was recently approached to get involved with DIY classes aimed specifically at ladies who want to learn a thing or two about drills, screwdrivers and all things DIY.
The force behind these classes, Allan Wilson, has dedicated a room in his house and plans are to expand to a total of 5 work areas that can seat 3-4 ladies at a time – fully equipped with the necessary tools, of course.
Brights Hardware, as a proud supporter of anyone interested in DIY, has so far donated workbenches, vices, toolsets, saws and cordless drills for use at these classes. We are truly excited about this initiative, and will continue to support it as long as possible, whether through supplying tools, materials or simply expert advice.
So far, three classes have taken place:
Lesson 1: 2 September 2015
During the first class, the ladies were taught to make pilot holes and how to properly turn screws into wood, by hand.
Lesson 2: 16 September 2015
The second class saw the ladies being taught how to cut wood, aluminium and steel, which they then used to make their own bench hooks for sawing stuff at home.
Lesson 3: 30 September 2015
During their third lesson, the ladies were introduced to power tools and Allan started to teach them about drilling into wood and soft metals. They learnt how to apply a power driver properly to screws and how to drill a pilot hole in order to lessen the amount of strength that needs to be applied when power driving.
