    A nail is a nail is a nail. There's fingernails, toenails, roofing nails, finishing nails, and of course nailing her..........What's the problem? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Finish concrete nails are from Finland. You need good ol American nails.

    [/ QUOTE ] you obviouslly don't work construction. 12 pennies, 6 pennies, roofers, finishing nails, spiral shank, concrete nails, and coated 12 pennies off the top of my head. Can't say I've heard of finishing concrete nail, sounds like BS to me. If you are nailing into concrete you are usually building off that and it will be hidden either way.

    [/ QUOTE ] We built log homes for a little bit, they were mainly screwed with some big lags and glued together.

    Concrete nails tend to be Black because there hardened and Spiral nails tend to be Silver cause they are galvanized /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Then theres also the Cut nail which looks like it sounds..cut from a sheet insted of round. Dont forget the ever popular ring shank and the screw shank which is slightly diferent that a spiral shank. Now if the heads about 3/8"-1/4" its a deck nail but if its a hair over an 1/8" then its a siding nail.
