What could be easier than loading eight (or more) eyelets up on a small screwdriver and shoving them in? I mean, with the hammer you've got to load the nail up, hold the loaded nail and tap the eyelet it in with the hammer, then (apparently) tap the nail back out with the hammer, and repeat. What's wrong with shove, shove, shove, shove, done?
Maybe I'm missing something...
My eyelets bend a misshape when I try to do that.
So I gave up on doing it that way!
(After about 50 eyelets went in the BIN!
