2Pin insertion

Pin insertion (self-drilling Schanz screws)

Insert each pin through the drill sleeve. A power tool is used to insert the screw thought the near cortex. Once the screw reaches the far cortex, which can be felt easily, turn the pin manually for another one or two rotations to anchor the tip of the screw in the inner side of the far cortex.
