  • Try the local lumber yard. Like the Mom & Pop grocery/gas station stores, they are becoming extinct as the Home Depots and Lowes mega-multiplex got-it-all franchises take over the world. Since ebay and Amazon et al have put the Sears and K-Marts out of business, what will be next???? Seems everything is bought on-line now. Kinda hard to buy lumber from ebay though dontcha think?

  • Hey Tim,
    Maybe they could de-hydrate the lumber. Open pack and just add water. LOL
    (Sorry, just could not resist)

  • You want cut nails or flooring nails. If you are doing a lot you will want a flooring nailer and they take strips and not loose nails. You can rent nailers. A lot of guys use L head nails for floors and they take a different nailer.

  • Most hardware stores home depot and lowes will have cut nails. they may call them different things. They call them things like masonry nails or hardened nails or cut nails. sometimes even square nails. I have some really big and really old ones if you want some.

  • I just did a Google search for "square head nails" and found many styles and sources.

    I suggest you do the same, as you know which style & size you seek.

  • I Think you want cut nails for flooring. My local hardware carries them, but don't think the big box store do.
