Just wondering if anyone knows a cheap place in perth to get gangnails, i need them for some pergola trusses....at Bunnies they work out to be about $35 a truss:oo: (14 of them per)
Failing this any other suggestions to fix the timbers???

gangnail is a trade name. The correct name is nail plate. You might try to call a truss manufacturer direct and see if they will sell you the hammer on variety.
Don't try to use the type designed to be pressed on with a hydraulic press because knocking that type on with a hammer will cause grief.

Stillitanos (Mitre 10) can order me in the size I need made by Pryda but they still work out exxy.....guess that's the price for convenience.
Any other ways of doing trusses,can they be nailed with a gun and be strong enough?
