Years ago I purchased several packages of what was called Beauty Brads at my local lumber center. They are since out of business and I'm low on these fasteners. They are approx. 1 inch long, headless, approx 22 gauge or 35 thousands, and the metal is brittle. Used for attaching small moldings until the glue dries. You can hammer them in proud of the surface then with the sideways tap of a hammer - they break off below the surface. Does anyone know where I can purchase more of these nails - could they be called something different today? Thank you for any help.

Regards, SA
