Re: Smaller nail size for field nailing ok?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Sounds like a recipe for disaster!  Carrying two nail sizes almost insures that the smaller ones would be used along the edges.  Keep it simple and just say no. 

Will it work theoretically, probably because the field nails simply prevent buckling of the panel.  But it is not good practice.
