Used to nail cedar shingles on my garden shed

I am using these nails to rebuild my cedar fence. The nails work even better than screws and they are a lot cheaper. Jamestown Distributors is the only place I am able to find these kind of nails in so many sizes.

Used to put up cedal shingles. Holds tight and won't rust due to the cedar.

I am building a plywood boat and originally started using copper ring nails. The first panel I installed on the port side I had about a 20% loss rate on about 200 nails. I am not a carpenter and any slight glance and the nail is done. I used the SS nails on the starboard identical panel and lost 3 nails. The nails will be encapsulated anyway.

The stainless ring shank nails are half the price of the box stores. They are a slightly heavier gauge which was not an issue nailing cedar clapboards. Shipping was fast. Always a pleasure dealing with Jamestown!

These nails were used in the construction of a Martha's Tender dinghy. This is a plywood four plank boat that has a really hard turn at the bow on the bottom planks. The nails were driven into white oak stringers at the chines and held perfectly. Making the planking a lot easier than I thought that it would be.They were also used to fit the rubbing strake. In fact the only screws used in the construction were for the transom and keel.

Use the product in the production of high quality custom and production saddles. Nails really hold in areas where they are unlikely to ever be seen or removed and they don't rot or stain the leather which is full of tannic acid from tree root and bark used in the tanning process. Saddles are highly subject to moisture incursion similar to closed in spaces in a boat. We would like to keep them dry, but the cycle of dampening to some degree and drying is inevitable. Also, owners typically do not oil saddles just like they do not maintain the finish on boats until they need repair.

I have used these twice for building cedar fences. I prefer them to some smaller gauge nails I have also used. They hold tenaciously and don't rust and stain the wood. They are overkill for my application and expensive, but worth it in my opinion.

Jamestown is a great source for boat building hardware. Fair price, [...] good product.
