I ran out of 1-1/4 inch nails for assembling frames. I started using the 4d finish nails, which are 1-1/2 long, but not the larger head. I put a couple together, and pulled and could not take them apart. I tried the suggested nails and I could pull the frame apart.
I also ran some smaller nails into the sides for added support. Anyone have experience with the finish nails?
