Exclamation Bed of Nails

http://www.pitt.edu/~dwilley/nailbed.html
Hey found this website. Instructions on how to make a bed of nails. I'm going to go to Home Depot in the morning buy some stuff if it isn't to expensive (hopefully not) and I'll let you all know how it turns out.

Ok do not try this unless you are rich or have a few hundred bucks to throw away. Aluminum spikes are unreal expensive. For that price they should be gold spikes. You need like a thousand spikes and at $5.00 for 10 spikes I think I'm going to use normal nails and take my chance with it rusting.

And standard nails "do" rust! Add wd40 (or something simular) to them afterwards and you can possiblly avoid it. Currently using a rusty bed of nails for the show, after a rainy day in Edinburgh. Also make sure you've had a recent tetnis shot, last 6 years I believe. Personally I'd prefer the aluminium ones, but can't seem to find them in Ireland. (Figgure my bed paid itself off, so I don't worry about the initial costs) If you know anybody willing to ship the "expensive" aluminiun ones, let me know.
