Easing a sticky wooden door using a multi-tool

Posted 14 Dec 2022

Few things are more infuriating in than a door that is stiff and a real challenge to open. Reasons for this may vary. It might be that a door has been measured incorrectly and needs realigning or, perhaps, the hinges may need maintenance. A simple tightening of the screws may do the trick, but in some situations, more drastic action may be needed.

The market is filled with tools and techniques for solving this problem, from a conventional saw, low grit sander to a police battering ram.  However, the SMART Rapid Wood Blade provides a unique and innovative way to solve this problem. It is a simple and effective multi-tool attachment that can trim wood with ease.
