RE: spiral shank nails

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Andrew,

 

There’s an ICC evaluation report from International Staple & Nail at http://www.icc-es.org/reports/pdf_files/ICC-ES/ESR-1539.pdf that looks like it might help.  If I’m reading it right, it looks like they’re giving the 7d spiral shank the same shear values as a 6d common.
