This is also another type of special nail, although this kind of nail has been in use for hundreds of years. Clout nails (some stores may refer to them as “roofing nails” or “felt nails”) have a typically bigger head and their stems are usually much shorter than an average nail. They’re often used to fasten clouts to axletrees and ploughshares.
Today, they can be used for a wide variety of purposes. Its use is common in woodworking, as they can be used to construct cabinets, make countertops, attach insulation boards, and to repair furniture. They’re used to fasten roof shingles and for crate and box construction. They can fasten sheet metal to wood when metal is used for roofing or siding.
Like other types of mails, clout nails are available in a wide range of sizes and lengths. They can be made from different types of materials, such as iron, copper, stainless steel, and aluminium.
There are also several kinds of clout nails. Some have rings on the shank that makes them more difficult to pull out, which is useful for outdoor purposes. It makes roofing more resistant to strong winds. Other types of clout nails are smooth to make removal more convenient.
