Picture frame V nail pusher made mostly of playwood, some parts, which request more strenght, walnut and beech, hardware aluminium and iron profiles and rods, few screws. Complete mechanisam is movable up-down and tightened with back wing-nut screw, so you can adjust height to accomodate various frames tickness.
For those who don’t know, those V nails are possitioned from the back of the frame to give additional strenght to corner joint.
Main magnet pusher was purchased on E-Bay with 600 hardwood V nails 5, 7 and 10 mm – all for 14 AU$, plus hardware some 6$ – total cost 20$. Works awesome.
Wolfcraft’s corner clamp I bought earlier (4 pieces).

Available video of how it works:

Didn’t have a clue what this was, never heard of V nails, seen pliers that push nails to hold the back on. Your pictures explained what it was for, but still don’t know how it exactly works. Nice job and engineering.
