[User Picture]01:05 am - Yanked from /. but worth spreading around.
What would you say if I told you that simply changing from 'plain' nails to well-engineered, super-modern design nails of the same physical size and able to be used in existing nailguns would single-handedly triple the strength of a wooden structure, so that the type and strength of wood becomes the limiting factor?

Behold the HurriQuake 2 nail.

This makes nails comperable to bolts and screws for useful holding strength in wooden structures. =^.^= Note it doesn't have the absolute gripping of Bolts, obviously, but it tends to make the strength of the wood the failure point, not the nail failing. :-)8 commentsLeave a comment
