How large are the heads on these nails?

Answers

I just measured the head of a 12" long spike with a caliper. The head is not perfectly round with a minimum diameter of 0.622" and a maximum diameter of 0.659". I'm sure there's lots of variability between spikes.

We bought these to use in building raised beds. By using these spikes the beds can de disassembled over winter. The spikes are long enough to stick into the ground and add stability to the beds. Their length also makes it easier to remove them from the joints by driving them from the bottom after the beds are emptied.

Fine for my intended purpose of temporarily staking lumber to the ground. Had to select longest spikes from box in store as some were slightly shorter. Also, zinc plating is fine on some spikes and very irregular on others. However, they all seemed to be adequately coated. I was able to push the spikes into the ground with my boot as the ground was soft. Hammered a few in with a mallet anyway and the spikes seemed to hold up well. None bent. I tied a short length of rope around the head of each spike so that they could be removed easily.

Used the spikes to hold railroad ties in line. Unless I predrilled the ties, the spikes would bend.
