Clench nails are highly suited for boatbuilding, with large heads and a specifically tapered tip to allow bending over. There are just three clench nail making machines remaining in the US, all operated in a cooperative effort by Piper Boatworks and the Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth, NH. This video shows one of these incredible machines in action, spitting out nails from a complicated mechanical action that gives us a real appreciation for 19th century engineers. There isn’t an app for this.

Clench nail ordering and further information can be found on Piper Boatworks Website.
