6d common nails

2023-06-14

While nails come in a range of shapes and sizes, common nails are one of the most extensively used varieties. Stylized with a round shank and a flat head, common nails have an unmistakable sharp point at one end and a blunted tip on the other. Suitable for use in a wide array of wooden projects, these nails can also feature a countersunk head for added precision.

Steel nails come in a variety of sizes, based on length (measured in inches) and diameter (expressed by gauge). The four most commonly used sizes are 6d, 8d, 10d and 12d – wherein “d” stands for a penny. This means that a 6d nail is equivalent to the width of six pennies side-by-side. Generally speaking, the higher the number of “d”, the longer the nail itself.

Common nails have multiple applications, from basic fastening of wood to wood or any other material, to constructing frames for buildings. They are vital for many construction-related tasks.

Manufacturers make common nails in a few different techniques. Arguably the most popular approach begins with rolling a steel rod into a rounded shape before slicing it into the length desired. Following this, workers form the head of the nail by pounding on the steel, while optionally choosing to add grooves to the shank part of it or leave it as-is.

Need to hammer something together? Throw some common nails into the mix! These trusty nails are offered in a range of finishes. For those seeking protection from rust and corrosion, galvanization is the go-to option. This coating adds a layer of zinc to the steel for dependable security. Those looking for a splash of color can find common nails in black, green, and red.
