Nails per Pound
So you’re starting a new project. You’ve done the proper planning and have your materials list all figured out. Amongst all the other items on your list there are some common nails, some finish nails, and perhaps some box nails. But there’s only one little problem, and you’ve been down this road before. You don’t want to buy too many nails, that’s just wasting money. And, you don’t want to get caught short handed either. There’s nothing worse than having your momentum killed because you’ve run out of nails and need to go buy more. That’s just a waste of time.
You know how many nails you need, but what good is that when they’re sold by the pound? Well, here is a little help. Use this conversion chart to turn a pound of nails into a quantifiable number.
