That's not a bad idea. Masonry construction according to the ACI 530.1 Specification for same, allows the engineer to require a "mock up" of each instance of "type" of construction present on the project for inspection.

I'm thinking of requiring that a board that displays a specimen of the actual nail of each specified size be submitted to the Engineer prior to beginning construction -- after my review and acceptance, the board would be set up on the site to be used to compare a nail with the acceptable standard for each structural nail size.  Has anyone tried this?
