Interior wall framing nails question.


Can someone please post the irc section that specifies acceptable nail sizes and types (twist, ringshank, etc.) for interior and exterior wall framing?

Thanks!

I use 3 1/4 inch Phosphorus coated nails inside or out for hand nailing framing, but I am Canadian and don't know what an 8 penny nail is...

That still leaves an inch of nail under the plywood waiting to give me a lobotomy when I lift my head up doing work in the crawl space....

I can't remember ever using a real 16D for anything. They required a higher end framing gun just to shoot them.
Always used 3 1/4 .131 nails(12) for regular framing and 2 1/2(8s) ringshanks for floor & roof sheathing. Mostly screwed the floor down, tho.

What's a "framing gun"? Some newfangled hammer?

It'd sure be better with 'example' pictures....
Is there an "Illustrated basic framing guide for Dummies" book out there? LOL

There’s only been 2-3 different boxes of nails on any framing job I’ve ever done.

16d for framing and 8d for sheathing and a box of roofing nails if gyprock/fire rock is involved (apartments, hotels, etc.).

Oh ya, I forgot my friend Teco.

We use 8d's for toenailing studs and 10d's for shoes/plate and the rest of the framing. Decking and sheathing we use 8d ringshank.

Interior wall framing nails question.


A 3 1/2" nail seems to be dumb to me if an inch of it sticks under the flooring into dead air. (and then in my friggin skull) a 2x4 on the 3/4" floor leaves too much nail on the other side. SOMEone please explain to me why it is necessary to endanger myself to pass code? Or IS it code? SHOW ME THE PICTURES!!! lol
What's the smallest nail I can use to nail a 2x4 to a plywood floor? So it DOESN'T poke through the other side?
Is this making sense????

Wow, framing with 10s, never heard of such a thing. I guess itís a location thing.

Donít get into the ring shanks until siding.

That would be Wood Siding by the way, we still use it out West.

Your supposed to hit joists with the nails. A joist is usually planned to be underneath most walls. Walls running perpendculiar(sp?) only get nailed through the joists. Small walls that can't be nailed like that, well - the nails just go through the plywood.
Use a 10 or 12 for those. The inspector isn't gonna crawl under there and look at what nails you used....... but you didn't hear that from me.
