common vs box nails

2023-06-26

Framing construction often entails the use of two distinct types of nails: Common Nails and Box Nails. Common Nails may be more budget-friendly, but Box Nails offer a sturdier grip. While there are considerable differences between these two nail varieties, let’s take a deeper look into their key distinctions.

Steel-models of the common nail come cloaked in a dull finish, and span a length of sizes from 3d to 16d. The prevalent size stretches as far as 3 inches in length, featuring a tapered point to make inserting effortless. Using the classic hammer, this flat-headed counterpart is easily driven into wood.

Typically fashioned from resilient steel, box nails adhere to a standard of quality with a dazzling, galvanized shine. Box nails are accessible in many of the same sizes as common nails, but conventionally don’t exceed two inches in length. In contrast to common nails, box nails possess a finer head and a sharp point. The best way to insert these nails is with the support of a nail gun.

Compared to box nails which offer a stronger grip and are appropriate for creating a diligent bond, say when connecting plywood to a frame, common nails are a more economical option and more prevalently favored for framing. Easy to obtain and work with, these nails are a practical choice.
