Corrugated Fasteners Everything There Is to know

Hi welcome to my tool kit urm.. today what
we are talking about is corrugated fasteners, as you can see we’ve got a strip of galvanized
corrugated fasteners there and like on our other videos there you can see a single corrugated
fastener taken off the strip. Now these come in various leg lengths, if
I turn this galvanized strip on its side you will be able to see that one is fifteen mm,
now there are three sizes they come in 9mm 12mm and 15mm there and you can adjust the
tools take what ever corrugated fastener. Now id like to show you on this strip I don’t
know if you can see it clearly there its actually coloured they’ve got a red dye running along
the strip of fasteners that is indicating that is the blunt side of the fastener in
other word this is the side that needs to be loaded in to the magazine so that the driver
strikes the blunt side of the fastener, conversely on the other side this is the pointed side
of the fastener. Now corrugated fasteners are used a lot as
you will see on the tool demonstration urm… on mitred joints, butt joints, for bringing
two pieces of wood together, you can drive a corrugated fastener from one side and then
the other and it will pull up the joints accordingly. If I bring up a fastener you can probably
see on there the fluted vanes of the fastener to pull the joint together, now although we
have different lengths of the fastener 9mm 12 and 15, the width of the fastener is constant
all the way through and that is 25mm one inch, so the crown of that fastener is 1 inch standard
and it’s the length of the fastener that varies. And again hopefully we’ve introduced you
a little bit more to corrugated fasteners and before I leave they are sometimes referred
to as wiggly nails it’s another terminology used in the trade but thanks for listening
and il see you again soon.

  1. it's almost impossible to remove these fasteners. however it can be done. you need to use a small tip screw driver and tap them out with a hammer. I did it with a cabinet door that had glass. not easy.
