In fact in America, there are already more than 18 million people diagnosed with the disease. This number is expecting to grow even more for the following years said by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA). With that prediction, gluten free foods demand was greatly affected. People with gluten intolerance were merely recommended to eat only gluten free foods.

|The Hole-Making Plumbing Chisel
There are several tasks involved in plumbing and not all of these require the usage of the power tools. Sometimes, an ordinary hand tool is enough for the task like in cutting holes; and chisel is the common tool that it needs. Chisel is used in various fields, in construction, in electrical matters and in plumbing.
Chisel may be used as a hole-making tool. It is commonly done in small pipes for plumbing. In doing it, a rough hole freehand is drawn using a pencil. The size of the chisel that should be use must be the one with the nearest perimeter in the hole. The tip of the chisel will then be positioned on one side of the hole and it must be tap with hammer. Tapping it around harder and deeper will eventually make you the hole. Make the hole cleaner by carefully tapping it again. And that is how the hole-making chisel works!
