THE FINAL BROADCAST
NAILS
September 3, 2014 10:00pm
- In 2013 the U.S consumed 629,716 tons of steel nails. If all that many nails were melted down and cast into a block of solid steel, the block would cover the area of a football field to a depth of 45'.
- 21% of the nails used in the U.S. were produced in the U.S.; the rest were imported.
- Five countries account for 2/3 of the nails imported by the U.S.: China (28%), Taiwan (16%), Korea (11%), UAE (6%), and Vietnam (6%).
- 75% of the nails produced in the U.S. were collated.
- 88% of the nails produced in the U.S. were bright (no finish).
- By weight, 66% of the collated nails produced in the U.S. were commons, 3% were finish nails, and 23% were pallet nails.
- 10 companies account for nearly all U.S. nail production; the major producers with plants in this country are: Mid Continent Nail Corporation, ITW, Pneu-Fast, Senco, and Stanley Black & Decker.
- The leading U.S. producer is Mid Continent Nail. Their plant is located in Poplar Bluff, Missouri.
- USITC documents refer to "short tons" of nails. A short ton is 2,000 pounds. A "long ton", a measurement used in the U.K. before the switch to metric, is 2,240 pounds.
- With both Karen Carpenter and Bob-Marc hammering out danger elsewhere, this FINAL BROADCAST of NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND is left up to Sherilyn Connelly and KrOB.
