pilot holes should not be used if the heads are small wich they where one the ones i where given in norway. also pilots reduces the holding ability of the rills on the side of the nails. a general tip which i did not see here is too slightly blunt the end of the nail (use you're hammer hit it once on the sharp end be careful not bend it under the presure). The tecknik ensures that the nail to a greater ekstent crushes the wood instead of shoving it out of the way (spliting) it.
