difference between common and sinker nails

2023-07-01

Fastening solutions are an essential part of any construction job, and nails are a popular choice. There are plenty of varieties available, but when it comes to common and sinker nails, there are a few key distinctions to consider. It’s wise to weigh both the pros and cons of each type before deciding which is best for the job.

In the realm of construction, common nails are king. Fashioned from a supple steel wire and featuring a blunt termination, they are proven to make woodworking a breeze. Notably, these nails reduce the likelihood of splitting the wood beneath and are much sturdier than their counterparts, decreasing the odds of unwanted bending or cracking.

Hammering in a sinker nail is an arduous task compared to other types of nails, but its harder steel wire guards against wood-splitting and bending. As a result, these nails command your respect with their greater resistance to snapping and splitting lumber.

When it comes to nails, it all depends on the task at hand. If you’re looking for an economical option for a multitude of applications, like a fence or deck, then common nails might be just the solution. They fit the bill, both monetarily and when it comes to ease of use.

When creating something that needs a few tiny nails, like cabinetry or furniture, then sinker nails are the smarter option. While they are pricier, their strength and durability of significantly outweigh their cost.

Regardless of your preferred type of nail, it is essential to abide by the guidelines outlined by its maker. Doing so will ensure the successful execution and safe accomplishment of your project.
