These nails are excellent for pinning mesh to wood. Never seen them in Thailand. Has anyone please?

Alas I think this is another one of those items not to be seen in Thailand.
When banging a nail sideways will do the job.
Bye the way I think their alternative name is Wire staples. I can never recall seeing them here.

Does not help does it. Sorry

They do sell industrial type staple and nail guns, either manual or compressed air.

You could always use wire clips. The nails with plastic U bits attached. They can be had from most hardware stores

You could set up a simple template cut the head off the nail and sharpen with an angle grinder then bend the nail Hair_Out1 FFS ( why why why ) lol

You do know Nick, these plastic clip thingies are not UV stabilized and will fall apart after a year in the sun in Thailand. You are better of with an industrial type stapler as NM advised.

Attaching wire mesh to a wooden frame.

The last time I attached wire mesh to a wooden frame a few years ago I used nails with an inverted washer under the head (of the nail). Drive the nails home with a hammer. They sold these in IQ and they were both cheap and effective. I fenced in part of the garden to keep our two large dogs off the grass area reserved for the family.

I'm busy today but tomorrow I will have a look in IQ and see what I can find.

That would do it. I have just had a friend offer to bring me exactly what I wanted from Switzerland, but unfortunately he is not arriving for a month.

I have many nails and washers at home, but will look for the combined one you suggest. Otherwise can make do with a nail bent over.

The time this is taking, you could have hired a Thai to come in and do it!

Of course I could, but there is immense satisfaction gained in doing a job yourself. There is no hurry - end of the month will do fine.

As for staple guns, if I had one OK, but I am not going to buy one for the sake of a few staples.

You seem relatively unsatisfied at the moment.

If stapling chicken wire gives you "immense satisfaction" I think you can truly say that have integrated into Thailand!
