Tin straws

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I’ve been looking where to buy some tin straws. Not sure of the name but that’s what we always called them. They are long, skinny, pointed on one end with a rounded lead head on the other. We used them to wire tin to pipe frames by punching holes in the tin and taking two straws and twisting them around the pipe. I used to see them at the hardware store but they don’t know what I’m talking about. Any ideas?

Here’s some pictures. Heads in one and twisted on the other. Hopes this gives y’all an idea.

never heard of them ?. around these parts, we either use self tapping sheet metal screws, or bailing wire.
