A couple weights are listed online. Nails sold by the pound have aproximations of the number of nails per pound.

http://www.iverswoodshop.com/Referance/Fasteners/Nails/Nails%20per%20Pound.html

Divide to find the weight of each nail in lbs and convert to oz by multiplying by 16. :D

If the nail types confuse you, the refrence page gives a description of each type of nail in the chart.
http://www.iverswoodshop.com/Articles/Nails/Nails.html

Don't feel bad if you have to follow the link to look. I didn't know what two of the types were. I only knew common and finish. :P


just tried this dont think my # were right
16P nail > .3256 OZ = 9.275 Grams
8P nail > .1509 OZ = 4.287

Here you have it, typical workshop shrapnel precisely weighed to one hundred thousandth of a gram. Scale is in inches ;)

Edit: 1 inch of the 115/16 wide duct tape I have here weighs 0.21245 grams.

Glass Marble weight

Using a postal scale I determined that 6 glass marbles weigh 1 oz.

7,000 grains per pound
16 ÷
--------------------------
437.5 = grains per oz.

6 ÷
--------------------------
72.9 = grains per marble.


Using a dial caliper my marbles measure 0.626" diameter.

FWIW
