    offset nail punch

    I have a row of nails in a fairly inaccessible position on my verandahs.

    They get hit by the sun a lot and eventually rise up out of the deck and I have to bang them down again once every 3 or so years.

    Got tired of holding nail punch at an angle and skidding off.

    So I made this - It is a concrete nail sandwiched between two bits of black bar.

    Works spectacularly well.

    Clever. Your deck boards look great, but I was still reminded of MetalDesigner's Deck Board Straightener.

    Smile steamingbill punch

    Definately save costs and associated dramas with replacing with s/s screws: steamingbill's joist looks pretty close to fascia/coverstrip.. Thanks for sharing.
