About Us

U.S. Patent US 10,058,931 B2

Building Industry Hawaii Magazine, May 2017

Jay Sussman, a resident of Hawaii where salty sea breeze proliferates the production of rust, was inspired to develop the Nail Head Gone tool after many unsuccessful attempts to deal with nails rusting through paint and putty only a year after being treated and repainted, and then removing the nails only to leave a time consuming scar on the siding, trim or other wood structures.


Nail Head Gone is a U.S. Patented (US 10,058,931 B2) tool that permanently removes rusty nail heads and rust bleed from any wood surface.  Made in the USA using state-of-the-art technology and top shelf materials (steel and solid carbide), the Nail Head Gone drill bit is for building contractors, painting contractors, DIYers, homeowners, repair professionals and realtors looking for an easy, low-cost solution to beautify homes.


Cost-effective in all phases of wood construction, Nail Head Gone eliminates rust bleed wherever it appears.
