Our Silicon Bronze ring nails (also referred to as bronze boat nails or ring shank nails) are threaded with annular ring barbs to create a locking effect and resist pullout stresses. This thread form provides holding power comparable to wood screws with maximum back-out resistance.
We recommended silicon bronze nails for wood or plywood joints where maximum resistance to withdrawal loads is required.
Note: Not recommended where shear, lateral or racking loads are significant, or for end-grain nailing.

After I removed the wall Panels the Termites has taken all the frame structure and ate it! Ha Ha The Job now is goin to be a little more than I expected! I have to reinforce the base of the wall and Jack it up back to 4-6 inches after I replace all the frame Gussets! I will take pictures cause normally the house boat would go to the Bone Yard! Wish me luck cause I know of no one who has ever did this before! Yes I will buy more stuff! Ha Ha

We are building a ply on frame 20'LOA cuddy cabin flat bottom dory in our backyard. We originally purchased ring nails from another supplier and was not very impressed with the quality of the nails they sold us. We ordered these ring nails from JD and were very happy with the results which led us to believe that not all ring nails are equal. These ring nails were a bit harder and less prone to bending - this made of our bottom planking task easier. We are very happy with the results and yes. . . JD has quality ring nails at a competitive price!

Silicon bronze ring nails were what was needed and I bought a pound. I needed about 45 of them, now looking for a project to use the 770 "leftovers" on.

I used these nails as rivets to reproduce armor. i found that it is easier for me to anneal them as they come with a temper (which makes them great for nails).

Im rebuilding an old wood and canvas canoe, needed to replace the inwales. I used white ash for the inwales and the ribs are white cedar. Worked perfectly. Before installing on the canoe I made some test pieces and did some destructive testing. I found that I needed to drill 1/16" pilot hole for the 15 gage nails that I used. In the test pieces the wood broke before the nails pulled out, in shear the wood usually split before the nail sheared. the nails are a real bear to pull, so predrill and and be sure of where your putting them

This is the first time I've used small ring nails instead of screws for fastening planking to longitudinal battens. I wish I'd done this a long time ago. You might need a dolly, like a car body shop uses, to back up the batten as you drive the nails between frames. They sell one here, but I see it's on clearance so it may be gone by the time you read this. I made one 30 years ago for copper rivet and rove fastening by filling a 2" steel pipe cap with melted lead. Still working as good as it ever did.

You might think that bronze ring shank nails would be a standard thing. Not so. Jamestown Distributors has proven time and again that what they sell is the real thing and it will meet my expectations. I no longer search around when looking outside my local supply area, I go straight to them and the next thing I know I have what I wanted and it is as described. This has real value to me.

I pre-drilled smaller holes in the mahogany wood so that the nails wouldn't bend over as I hammered them in as they're softer than iron nails.
