    Very efficient service. Product to me within a couple of days and a quality item. Used for red cedar planking - look good and hold well. Not available locally so great to find a supplier who sends a good product quickly.

    Option for 50mm nails

    Posted by Peter fast on 18th Mar 2014

    I'm using your nails to secure Western Red Cedar boards on my home and garage.

    I have hardwood frame.

    If a silicon bronze nail 50mm x 3.25 was available it would help with fixing in hardwood which still need pre-drilling. Also the longer nails have a larger head which I prefer. You could also look at 40mm X 3.25 for hardwood applications as the drills available are too short to safely pre-drill and 40mm is OK on hardwood. They don't come out easily!!

    I had previously purchased a box from Classic Boat Supplies thinking that there would be plenty. But I ran out with a few boards to nail on.
    I received the new box within three days with no down time. Excellent service thanks.

    I couldn't buy these locally, even though I bought the western red cedar here. Needed the nails in a hurry and Classic Boat Supplies delivered them in a couple of days, and saved me time and money. Excellent service, thank you
