a pic might help… sounds like a scraper… but can’t say for sure.

Hey Kevin
these type of connectors were usually pounded into wood on edge at the corners to hold corners together usually used on soft woods like pine on projects like window screens.

These connectors were great YEARS (DECADES) ago, now they are pretty much useless unless you know how to use them. Jim is right, they were used a LOT for screen windows back in the day, some still do. They are also great for splitting the wood, if not used right. Basically they are a big headache, compared to today’s fasteners.

Yes combining two woods across a joint. Jim is right. A box with a red label if I’m right. I might have a box in some of my stuff.

Kevin the picture needs to be in an internet location like flickr or picasso.

You can’t post a picture from your hard drive.

I think most of the guys have explained their use pretty well. They were like a carpenter’s baling wire. And if you don’t know, in the farm communities, everything used to be held together with hay baling wire. And that’s been replaced by duct tape.

Here’s the ones that I found in my shop. It turns out I have 4 boxes. two different sizes.

These must cost 35 cents a box.

There were also the corrugated roofing style.
