    good shit man. Bending is fun until you look in the mirror afterwards and your eyes are red from burst blood vessels! But fun non the less!

    Most reasonably strong folks can hit a timber tie on their first go. If you're not strong enough for the 60 penny nails, bend them part of the way (with a vice and a fucking hammer if you want, however) and finish them.

    Folks get fancy with wraps these days, but I just use a little piece of suede.

    my dad is the mechanically inclined one......i hit him up for 60 penny nail and he looked at me cross eyed and gave me a '16 penny nail'.....i've wrapped it in a piece of towel and have put about a 10-15 degree bend in it.

    i'm gonna get a timber tie tomorrow.

    edit: just finished off the summvabitch.......1.5inches right? didn't need the vice.....where is it measured to?
