Fence nailing options
I'm helping a friend finish a fence that he has started. He already has the post put in and the stretchers up, now we need to put up all the pickets. He put the 2 x 4 strecher flat against the 4X4 postand the pickets are 5/8 thick pressure treated. The shortest hot dipped nails I can find are 2" so with the picket and the stretcher that only leaves 1/8" of clearance and room to sink the head.
Has anyone ever seen Framing nails shorter than 2" I don't want to switch to my finishing nails since I've never seen hot dipped finishing nails.
Anyone have any ideas?
