I wanted to open a dedicated thread to this so it doesn't fall through the cracks. Some may have missed the mention of a #3.5 equivalent nail because it's burried in the Gold nail thread. Below is my post in regards to a #3.5 equivalent.
Thoughts? ....I think the Gold Nail should stay as it is and in addition to the Gold Nail, perhaps the next step (like Andy mentioned) should be a #3.5 equivalent.
Randall, can your steel supplier get 11/32nd stock? That would be half way inbetween the Red Nail and the Gold Nail as far as diameter and maybe the length could also be somewhere in between like 7.5" or 8". This is where the "Black Nail" finally comes into play to complete the cert trilogy like the gripper certifications. Whatcha think?
obviously, I'm all for it.
