About this deal

Although there are some debates around the classification of what constitutes as a brad nail. As far as we are concerned (20 years plus in the industry) a brad is either a 21 Gauge or 18 Gauge Nail. Benefits of Brad Nails Well, following my previous post on staples, which also explains about finishes in both Stainless Steel and Galvanized. Fasteners: I’d now like to take you into the fascinating world of ……wait for it………Brads! (and Pins!!) Yes, you can’t believe it can you? You’ve waited all this time and, finally, it’s what you’ve been searching for your whole life, your Holy Grail is here right at your fingertips……….No? Seriously though, there is a lot of confusion around size and gauge of brads and pins and even the regular user of nailing tools still have confusion around nail gauges. So why don’t we take the lid off and give a little clarity to the murky world of brad nails?! Finishes: A functional resin or glue coating is applied to the nail shank to reduce therequired nailing power and also to increase the withdrawal resistance of the nail

Headless Pins The finest pins in our range and are 23 Gauge. (0.64mm in diameter) They have (you guessed it!) no head, and are fantastic for beadings and mouldings and because they’re headless, the finish is almost invisible…………. No unsightly wood fill. Sometimes referred to as a Micro Pin. They’re becoming more popular and surprisingly, give a lot of holding power. (although glueing is still advised) It’s currently available on our range in lengths from 12mm – 28mm. Thanks for “Brads and Pins – The Ultimate Explanation”. I enjoyed that. Very clear and concise explanation of the terminology which is “reverse logic” (much like your payslip). Trying to select which tool to invest in (2nd fix/finishing nailer) confused the hell out of me until I viewed your piece, but now I can make an informed decision. I have bought from these people on line. If you can find someone that sells Swan stainless steel screws in your area they might have the nails.

How Nails are Sized 

As Brad nailers operate thin 18-gauge brads in lengths up to 2” long, they leave a lesser hole, therefore, less likely to split thin workpiece" (bestofmachinery.com) Conclusion: Electromagnetic Galvanising uses electrolysis to draw zinc and chromate onto thesurface of bright steel. The result is a thin galvanised layer with a smooth finish,typically up to 10μm (microns) Available in 13mm through to 50mm Stainless Steel brads with very slight heads. All come in boxes of 1,000 with the exception of the 13mm which come in boxes of 7,000. Stanley Electric TRE650 Nail Gun - NB this tool will only take up to a max of 25mm (1inch) leg length
