Fasco Scrails


Anyone using them? Seem like a good idea, but good ideas don't always translate into good real world performance. Considering giving them a go on an upcoming cedar deck.

Re: Fasco Scrails


I took a look at them a few years back under a different name. Never used them as they were not available in a galvanized nail. It is an interesting concept tho.

To me the scrail is the same concept as the tiger claw hidden fastener gun as you can back out the scrail if you need to after you shoot it into the fastener. I don't know why you just wouldn't use a stand up auto feed screw gun instead of bending over all day.

When I looked at the system collated screws were like half the price.

Re: Fasco Scrails


What I'm looking at fires from just about any framing nailer on the market, so there are no special tools to buy. It's also twice the speed of collated, or so they claim. Some interesting vids out there...now just to find a good place to buy.

Re: Fasco Scrails


The Scrail is what is used in the Tiger Claw gun. If you used our gun you used Fasco Scrail. You don't need the TC gun to use them.

They are available with the Fascoat corrosion resistant coating. Tough Stuff.

We have gone through millions of these screw nails. Any kind of installations that need exceptional holding power and may need to be taken apart, these things are the answer.

Check them out at http://www.fascoamerica.com/scrail_home/home.php

It's not a Tiger Claw product.
