Found this forum when a thread appeared in a Google search about masonry nails. Looks like there are some knowledgeable, helpful folks here. I tinker and do projects at home, and design parts and assemblies and instructions for work (drafter/industrial designer), so maybe I can help answer a question here. I can also help with some CAD questions, if you're a person who likes to plan your projects on the computer but are new to it (SketchUp/SolidWorks software suites). There's an entire universe of home improvement tips and tricks that I don't know, and I'm hoping to find some ideas out here.
