Nails
 
in a small town in texas there is a tin barn that the tin is fastened to the internal structure with long lead head nails.one nail is driven thru the tin on one side of the structure,the other is driven where it comes out on the other side of the pipe structure.then they twist them together ,hence attaching the sheet-iron to the pipe without screwing tin to pipe. from the outside all you see is lead heads and the inside has all the twist around the structure,this barn was built in 1947 and still with no signs of any problems! so my question is where can I find these long skinny leadhead nails
