Challenge - can you ID these Aluminum Nails??

Postby Dale Finch » Sun Apr 01, 2018 3:26 pm

OK, I give up. I know some of you out there do construction, so I am hoping someone can identify these Aluminum nails for me. I have a 20# box of them, and do not what they were used for. Figured they were SO pretty, they must be worth something, but first I need to know what they are and then what they are worth?

Used either for shingles, for siding, or for axle wedges :{_}:

Basically they are mostly used for fastening timber exposed to the elements. I have recently used about 1cwt of them fastening fencing boards.

No telling what they were used for, Tipper Tie in Apex, NC, makes Poultry and meat processing and packing equipment. Could have originally been used to install paneling in manufacturing areas, similar to the white panels they install in the actual processing areas to prevent contamination.

Think I'll put them on Craigslist, just wish I knew what they are worth. Suggestions are welcome. 20 pounds is a lot of nails!

Don't know why the nails were purchased.

Do know that hog building are very corrosive. Fumes from hog urine and manure will eat up metal is a short order.

Use to have a furniture stripping business. Fumes from the stripper corroded up the copper water pipes.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Hmmm....this was a hog farm a while back, before we bought the 20 acres. But I was thinking they might have been used for securing the fabric tape-type electric fence my sister had around one of the pastures for a couple years. There were insulating blocks that held about a 3"wide metalic/fabric material, and they were nailed to the fence posts. Could have been used for those. Oh well. I think they are going on Craigslist and the Vine, when I get a chance. I do now know they are pricey...too much so to just give away!! Maybe they will buy a new cub part! :D
