Power Twist Universal V Nails 12mm SW Normal 3000

Power Twist – Engineered to give the tightest corner join

Power Twist V Nails have been engineered by Alfamacchine to achieve the tightest corner join. The tapered shape and elasticity of the steel makes the V Nail twist outwards as it enters the moulding, once inserted the V Nail pulls the mitred edges together as it contracts to return to its original shape, resulting in a tightly closed corner join.

Power Twist Universal V-Nails are 10.3mm wide and fit most brands of Underpinners including Inmes and Cassese. They are sometimes referred to as UNI Wedges by other manufacturers. 

We recommend Power Twist V Nails for framers of any level because they consistently help achieve a tighter corner join, stay perfectly straight and reduce jamming. V Nails are a relatively low cost element of making a frame, so we suggest using the best.  

+ Power Twist Design Technology
The patented taper shape of Power Twist V Nails, twists outwards as the V Nail is inserted into the moulding, which then pulls the join tightly together once inserted as it contracts to return to its original shape.  

+ Consistent High Quality Steel Construction
The same exceptional quality control and detailed design that Alfamacchine Underpinners are renowned for, goes into their V Nails. Power Twist V Nails are made from only the best carbon steel and as a result they stay consistently straight when inserted. This is particularly useful in timber with variable grain such as Finger Jointed Pine.

+ Silicone Coating Formula
A silicone formula is used to stack the wedges rather than adhesive, as the residue from adhesives is a common cause of jamming in the firing mechanism of Underpinners. The silicone also acts as a lubricant, ensuring V Nails slide smoothly into the moulding. 

+ Available for Normal or Hardwood
Power Twist Universal V Nails are available for both Normal and Hardwood. The silicone on the V Nail strips is colour coded for easy identification. Clear for Normal, Brown for Hardwood.

+ Available in Five Different Sizes
Available in 5, 7, 10, 12 & 15mm.

+ Designed and Manufactured by Alfamacchine in Italy
