    Nailed

    OK all you fellow carpenters and anyone else who think they know.
    Here is a photo of one nail which has been just tapped into a piece of scrap timber with 10 other nails laying at it's base. The nails in question are 65mm flat heads.
    The task is to balance the 10 nails on top of the one standing . No magnets, electricity, glue of any kind are used and provided it is not too windy if done out doors, it can be done anywhere. All you need is a steady hand. I have the photo of the nails balancing, but haven't uploaded that photo anywhere yet, so It's no use looking !
    I will post a pic of the answer in a day or 2 time. Have fun !

    I thought I had it but if I ask you a question it might give the idea away.

    Glad you all enjoyed that !
    The main thing is that you use flat head nails so that the heads can lock between the other 2 nails. I doubt that plain jolt / bullet head nails would work.

    I have added another way to do this. Your way was the way we were shown initially, but we had a 20 year old here last year and he fiddled about and came up with this.

    Guess there could be a few other ways also.
