Maze makes some wedge shaped masonry nails in addition to the more common heat treated spiral nails that come in handy in the shallower hard rock holes, and the longer ones work in softer lime mortar laid tile basement for holding the metal lathe for plastering.

Sometimes you can make "Swedish" drift pins out of galvanized or regular common 16/12 penny nails, kink on 2 by 4, cut to length if needed, washer for metal lathe, fast and cheap.

I always end up with a bunch of tap cons to long for wall ties and to short for 2" thick form boards. 1.5-2.25" long.
