I like insect pins because theyre so thin, and theyre easy to drive in. I also like the euro pins especially when I want a "stop" feature of the handles besides just the shaft angle of the pin. Good products are popular products.
Snow, are you talking tow or fine excelsior? Cause as far as I new tow was impossible to get anymore? If its tow, I want a few bales!
I have the fine pins that are just as John described, with the little plastic dot of a head on them, and just as he described, theyre for the insect pinning to riker mounts and drying boards. I also have a fine pin that is labelled as an insect pin, very fine again, but with a flat head. Theyre fine, stiff and almost invisible if you had to leave one in the mount.
