Copper Common Nails

Copper Common Nails are often used with Copper Burrs, also known as copper washers, to create a traditional copper rivet, similar to clinch or clench nailing. Copper rivets are often utilized in classic planked wooden boat construction.

        Comments about Jamestown Distributors Copper Common Nails:

        I am a beginning Flint Knapper ( Arrowheads, stone knife blades ) and had searched locally for a copper rod resource to make my own pressure flaking tool. These nails are PERFECT for making your own tips for Flint Knapping tools, and are long enough / thick enough that just one will last a long, long time. T-TOTALLY happy with this product.

                              I purchased the smallest size of these nails to use as part of the finishing trim on a deck I built for my house. The nails are holding thin strips of Ipe (Brazilian Ironwood) to posts on the deck and look absolutely stunning against the oiled finish of the wood. I know the copper is going to lose it's shine eventually but they look very sharp now.

                                  Copper Nails combined with copper roves make great rivets when joining two pieces of wood for outdoor use. Makes a decorative and weather resistant joint. I used them when building outdoor benches of Alaskan Yellow Cedar attaching both the seat and back rail parts.

                                    I was worried that these nails would bend too easily when driven into hard material, but they held up very well under my pounding.
