Thats a good idea. Maybe they used that before they had screws though. lol. That would seem to take a lot of pounding away because your actually trying to bend a nail thats going straight into the metal. But that is a good idea if you run out of screws and your desperate. All you need is......what and 30 ounce hammer? haha j/p.delnor said:Actually, I have in the past made flats with nails and a piece of steal. It's kind of an old trick I think. If you put the flat togther and lay a piece of hard metal down under the flat and then nail into it real strait the idea is that the nail goes all the way through the flat and gets pushed out when it hits the steal plate. That way you get a nail head type effect on both sides of the nail and they dont come out that way. They can be much stronger then staples but most people don't bother anymore because its time consuming.
I think Jo-Jo has hit the nail on the head here.Jo-JotheSoundDog said:
