Technical Specifications

Eagle Metal plates are formed in a piercing die which punches two nails in opposite directions simultaneously from the same hole. The nails are approximately 5/16 inches (7.9mm) long and 1/8 (3.2mm) wide and have opposing scarf points. Each nail progressively rotates from 0 degrees at the base to approximately 5 degrees at the tip. In addition, each set of nails is spaced 1 inch (25.4mm) on center across the length of the plate and are offset approximately 1/8 inch (3.2mm) from each other.
