65mm Box Nails (Galvanised Clouts)
« on: March 04, 2019, 01:26:29 am »
Does anyone know where I can purchase 65mm Galvanised clouts for assembling boxes? Preferably in the Sth.East of Melbourne or online.
I know you can buy them from beekeeping suppliers, but I am trying to cut out the middle man.
I don't need a huge quantity , one or two kilos would suffice.
I appreciate any help in this matter

Any Hardware store. Bunnings have them.

Thanks for the reply.
 I'm actually after clouts, with the big flat head as opposed to the regular flat head nails they sell at Bunnings.

True clouts that long I haven't seen in many a year, even the old b'kpn gal nails didn't own
heads as wide as clouts as did the packing case plain steel nails.
Woodenship builder supplier maybe?
Screw technology being what it has since the battery drill took over there is today
any number of options in coatings. But you know that.
