Although the box your nails came in may
tell you that they're 1-1/4" long…but don't count on it without
On a recent project, no less than 38% of the nails in the
box we bought were either too long, too short or had imperfections.
To avoid the problems that could be caused by these problems,
it's always best to dump a bunch of the nails out of their
box onto your work bench surface before using them. This way,
you can "eyeball" them to see if they're up to snuff before
using them and potentially damaging your project.
It's a lot like the old "Measure twice - cut once" adage.
Check your nails before you use them.
