From its construction in 1901 until its closing in 1985, Atlas Tack constructed cut and wire tacks
, steel nails and similar items.
We tried three different deterrents: old boards or poles cut from downed trees, fastened about two feet above the ground; or a strand of barbed wire tacked
about two feet above the ground.
The company made trimmings for cars and furniture and grooved wire tacks
. They were also, it would appear, pretty good at making wooden horses.
