Do they exist anymore? All I can find are boxes of cheap electroplated
roofing nails imported from China.
I've checked at every hardware and lumber store in town, including the
ones that used to weigh out bulk nails. Thursday, I was at a Habitat
for Humanity work site; someone left the roofing nails outside and they
got wet and rusted to uselessness in a week. (I was looking for good
nails before this, but I didn't think even *bright* nails would rust
They're easy to find in coils for roofing nailers; not easy to find in
bulk. You might be better off looking for stainless steel, although
they are pricey. you could probably buy coil nails and a nailer for
what you'd pay extra for SS.
Thanks. I may buy a box of 'em and have my kid cut them apart for me
while she watches TV. (I'm not doing a roof, I only need a couple of
pounds to put up cement board in a wet area.)
I have some galvanized ring-shank nails for my framing nailer. I don't
remember exactly what kind of nails they are, but they are just the
right size except the heads are smaller. I wonder if they might work...
