I’m working to frame some original artwork in Ipe for a friend’s tattoo shop, but the Logan ‘hard wood’ V-nails I have keep folding over as I attempt to insert them.
I am driving them vertically- I don’t have a V-nail driver, but I overcame this by putting a lug nut (flat end down) in the chuck of my drill press and attaching a rare earth magnet to hold my V-nails to it, then bringing it down. They’re simply not tough enough for the Ipe wood.
Anybody know a brand that might do the job? Thanks
