Less Mess. Collated strip nails for 20-degree full round-head framing nailers are typically held together by rigid plastic strips that can transform into mini projectiles and pile up underfoot like so many ball bearings. Duo-Fast's Paper Tape Framing Nails eliminate such hazards and reduce plastic waste. According to the maker, paper collation is also less likely to break if dropped. So far, testing at the local vo tech has been thumbs up. The nails come in bright and hot dipped galvanized versions; bright 16s cost $58 a box online.
