Copper Cut Tacks

Copper Cut Tacks are a favorite fastener used by Boatbuilders, Woodworkers, Crafters, Upholsters and Carpet Installers. Also known as Flat Head Tacks, they feature a sharp point, tapered body and an angular cut shank to resist pull-out.

Longer length copper tacks are used as clench nails for wooden light craft, lap-strake boats and wood and canvas canoe construction.

Our Copper Tacks are now offered in lots of 25 for those installing oar leathers.

    Comments about Jamestown Distributors Copper Cut Tacks:

    I use these real copper tacks to stretch my own canvas on stretcher bar frames for fine art painting. Copper does not rust like carpet tacks, and these tacks are easy to start since they are very sharp and they stay put. I used to order them from art supply houses, but they have gone to short copper plated nails that are inferior to real copper tacks. The 3/8's of an inch tack are the perfect size for nailing into standard stretcher bars, without having the points of the nails poking through on the other side.
    I teach my high school advanced art students how to save money while making their own canvases look professionally made.

        Comments about Jamestown Distributors Copper Cut Tacks:

        These tacks are copper, not just copper coated. I stretch and prepare all my own canvasses for painting. I use high quality Belgian Linen and good wood stretchers, and it is important to me that the tacks are sturdy, beautiful, very functional. I like that I can get different lengths, and that this shipment came so quickly. Great service!

        Comments about Jamestown Distributors Copper Cut Tacks:

        I always use copper tacks when constructing my canvases for painting. They don't rust, are easy to start when nailing, and they stay put until you remove them. But, like anything made from copper, they are pricey. Most art suppliers are selling copper coating nails which just work the same.
