Re: Difficult Spikes

I have a bunch of microspikes. They are a rip roaring pain in the ass to drive. Is there a secret to using them? I bend about four before getting one in successfully. I have used them on trestles, but I pre-drill the holes and dipped them in Elmer’s white glue before I drive them. I don’t want to do that for a whole darned railroad.
