    Man that place looks great!

    I remember seeing a tread on here a while back about pounding nails into small blades. It looked cool and very useful.

    I keep plenty of nails on hand, but use screws more often. Roofing nails are great item along with rolled roofing.

    Luke that is a great looking timberframe building. I'll pm you and pick your brain for some ideas about it later.

    And yes, nails are really handy to have around for certain types of projects. Salvaging old nails is a good idea as well, especially if you are a prepper

    I remember seeing a lot of small, and some not so small, timber frame building built when I was in Northern Japan in the 80's. Assembled with wooden pins and wedges too. My freind explained that one of the reasons they used the "old" tech (with tin roofs and siding) was because the frames would flex and give during an earthquake instead of shattering. It appears they also float during a Tsunami.

    Half a dozen nails in a kit can be useful. With a scotch-eye auger you can make a trap for racoons or monkeys using three of the nails and a hole in a log.

    I keep the "stick" nails used in pneumatic framing nail guns that are collated with paper. This way I can throw 3 or 4 sticks in my BOB and are more organized and at hand than a handfull of nails would be. Being a carpenter I'm more exposed to the many different types of fasteners out there and would highly recommend everyone getting some.

    Good thread!
    Part of my "preps" are boxes of 5, 10 and 16 dwt nails, along with a few spikes. I dearly love my drill-driver, and using screws, but there may be a day when it has to be replaced by a hammer.
