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.

Great Product!

I'm not much of a writer and I don't build boats. I ordered these copper nails for use on some architectural birdhouses that I am making as gifts. I finish the roofs with a copper strip that's nailed on each side and while I do have to drill through the copper first (these nails are "copper soft"), the pointed tip of the nails easily seats the nail so it can be driven in the rest of the way. I'd also like to express my gratitude to this company for such an easy transaction and for selling these nails in a useable quantity. I'll definitely come back for more materials as my projects evolve.

Archival picture framing includes stretching canvases in a traditional manner with real copper nails or tacks. It is hard to find copper tacks this size in decent quantities at most hardware stores. For clients who want the best, copper is the only way to go.

Good solution for assembling wired bee hive frames to resist corrosion, and good anchoring of the wire in the shallow depth of the side bars.

The Real Thing

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.

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!

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.
