Answered on 04/24/2014 by art cestaro

Answer

I have no personal experience in doing this, but I do not know of any reason they would not do well for this application. They certainly should last a lifetime!

Answer

if they're long enough, sure

Answered on 04/24/2014 by JOHN LLOYD

Answer

Type 304 or 316 stainless steel annular ring nails are the recommended fasteners for cedar shingles. If you are within 15 miles of salt water then type 316 is a must.

Answered on 04/23/2014 by LENNIS MCFADDEN

Answer

Yes, I used them for that exact purpose. It's been two years on the coast of Maine with no issues.

Answered on 04/23/2014 by JON EVANS

Answer

We've been using these nails for years for exterior cedar shingle applications. We've used them for both white and red cedar shingles on multiple buildings that are on the beach. The nails hold up very well in the salt air environment, and also against the tannins in the cedar shingles.

Answered on 04/23/2014 by DAVID PRELACK

Answer

Yes they can. They will work perfectly. No staining & plenty holding power. Regards, S. Marks

Answer

The diameter is small -- maybe 1/8 inch -- but entirely adequate for my use, which was attaching cedar shingles.

Answered on 07/28/2014 by DAVID SODERBLOM

Answer

Dear Lucas M, I did not purchase 1" length but rather 1-1/2" and 2" nails. As close as I can tell both heads Diameter are 1/4". I hope this helps. Regards, Fred M

Answer

I would estimate 3/8ths of an inch. I think they are a good choice for plywood on frame, because screw counter-sinks would weaken the plywood.

Answered on 07/28/2014 by ROBERT ACHURCH

Answer

Lucas, I used them all on a project that I no longer have in my shop and from what I remember they were about 1/4" to 5/16" head diameter.

Question

using for boatdock on 3/4" "actual" boards. what ss nail do you rccommend?

Asked on 12/21/2011 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I would suspect that the ring nails are a bit too fine for a dock. If they have thicker nails then I would use them.I use the ring nails for shingles and they work quite well

Answer

I used them to nail the rubber dock edge to my wooden dock ! They are perfect! add the thickness of what you are nailing to the thickness of the dock wood ( 3/4") and you should be fine ! these ribbed stainless nails do not come out they hold tight!

Answered on 12/21/2011 by MICHAEL SANTULLI

Answer

Hello, I would suggest you use screws to hold down deck boards on a dock. Your boards are going to expand and contract a lot with the moisture and temperature changes. I suspect that even a ring shank nail will start to loosen up after a couple seasons. Also, with 3/4 boards, you're going to get some bounce, and that would also tend to pull a nail loose. I've used the ceramic coated "Scorpion" screws on my PT dock over salt water, but they have not been in long enough for me to tell you about corrosion resistance. A 316 SS screw would work for sure, but they are more expensive. I have used the small size ring shank nails to build fences with PT wood that gets hit often with irrigation water, and they have held up for several years. The pre-built fence sections from the Home Center fall apart in 18 months as the fasteners rust out.

Answered on 12/21/2011 by SCOTT SEUBERT

Answer

The general rule of thumb is to use a fastener twicw as long as the material being fastened (at a minimum) therefore I recommend 2" ring shank nails.

Answered on 12/21/2011 by ROBERT ACHURCH

Answer

I'd go with the 1-1/4" nails. They do not penetrate all the way through so the points cannot cause injury to bare feet on the exit side. I found the alloy to be stiff and it does not bend easily; therefore, I'd stay away from clenching (bending over) an over length nail. I used the 3/4" nails to hold 1/4" plywood together while the epoxy cured. These little beauties really hold! I filed off the excess and tried not to heat up the cured epoxy when I chose to grind flush the proud points. -Bruce

Would these nails be suitable for securing mahogany decking? I was thinking 2 inch nail for 1" X 4" decking.

Asked on 06/20/2016 by Douglas Poirier

Top Answer

no, i would use 1- 5/8" screws making sure to predrill holes to prevent splitting. if you dont want to see screws you can countersink and use mahogony plugs

Answer

in mahogany i would perhaps drill a small pilot hole. the size of the pilot would be your own judgement based on the grain structure of the wood. i personally love these nails as they do not stain wood and are better than other brands i have used.

Answered on 06/21/2016 by ROBIN HODGES

Answer

I used these for cedar shingles as siding. I'm surprised that they might be thought suitable for decking (house or boat?) because they are fairly thin and short. When I had mahogany decking installed they used stainless screws, about 2-1/2 long.

Answered on 06/20/2016 by DAVID SODERBLOM

Answer

Yes, the nails were fine, consider how you will finish the deck, a little counter sinking may be necessary if you don't want the nail heads to show.

Question

This may sound like a dumb question but, with regards to the #12 X 2" stainless ring shank nails, what does the #12 equate to in fractions of an inch?

Asked on 04/21/2018 by Stu from Twin Mtn., NH

Top Answer

For nails there is no direct correlation to fractions. A #12 nail is .1055" or just under 7/64".

Answer

I use a lot of #12 X 1" stainless ring shank nails and I'm not sure if #12 mean 12 gauge or not, but if you drill a 1/16" pilot hole in wood a #12 nail will fit rathe snuggly into the hole. Hope that helps. - Ken

Question

can you buy only one pound lots ?

Asked on 03/31/2015 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

You can buy any amount you want!

Answered on 03/31/2015 by RICHARD GREENWAY

Answer

When you place your order, you have to specify the quantity. If you only want one pound, then you would enter the number one (1) in the quantity field. If you wanted to pounds, then you'd enter the number two (2). The prices shown in the drop down box where you choose the size of the nail, is the price for one pound. That drop down list also tells you approximately how many nails of that size are in one pound.
