Installing a drop-in sink

I'm trying to install a drop-in stainless steel sink into a new gramite countertop. The granite installer made a cut-out and told me to use silicone to hold it down. I'm trying to use tyhe clamps I had before that held the same sink to my old formicsa counter, but the clamps are too short. Any ideas? I saw something about weepholes. What are those?

The stone installer told you to use silicone,
what makes you think that you know more than he does about his product.
IF you go use lockdown screws, you will put tension on a thin granite slab at 4 or 6 points around the perimeter of a hole.
stone breaks under very small tensions
do as instructed and silicone the sink in place,
or void any warranty and buy the counter top again when you break it
formica is plastic on a chipboard substrate -not stone

not perhaps the answer you want to hear,

How do I remove a jammed nail in the SHF50?

Hi Al:
Usually nailers are built so that removing jammed nails is an anticipated activity.
make sure the air supply is disconnected from the nailer.
Press the safety against a piece of wood and pull the trigger. Nothing should happen but it's just one of my safety phobias.
Now you can have a really close look at the nailer mechanism.
Remove any nails that are still in the magazine.
Some nail guns have a cam or tab that will release the face of the nailing assembly.
Others have a plate secured with cap screws or little bolts. There is often an allen wrench provided with the gun just for the purpose of taking the plate off so that you can remove the jammed nails.
If all else fails, you could check with the place you rented or bought it from.
Patience, curiosity, and safety. Keeping tools working is an adventure!

never use a hone on a air tool cylinder! use 00004 steel wool! make sure the compression rings are concave facing up! then if the vanes have the cut out on one side put that to the bottom of air motor.

Air hammer support

The level of pressure used is based on the type of plenishing job to be done. Materials such as copper or aluminum require a low pound-per-square-inch (psi) level because it is easy to form or buff them. On the other hand, materials such as stainless steel need the air hammer's highest psi levels.

Air hammer Question

Air hammers are ideal for some specific jobs of craftsmen. Since they do not require your hand to hold the nail stationary, they are safer than conventional hammers. In addition, since air hammers do not involve swinging, they are perfect for projects that require a great deal of nailing, such as installing drywall. This will help you save energy and complete your task more efficiently
