The Nailers made it five draws from six games with an equaliser in injury to deny Lynn a victory.
The home side had taken the lead on six minutes when Colin Marrison is on hand to poke home from inside the area after Lynn has failed to clear.
Alex Street pulled off two saves to deny Regan Edridge and Evan Garnett before Lynn had their first real chance, a Dan Quigley header forcing home custodian James Martin into a good save.
Street was again on hand to deny Stevenson before Lynn equalised just before half time. Jake Jones was hauled down by Edridge and David Bell scored from the penalty spot.
Ian Ross hit the post for the home side but Lynn took the lead on the hour when the home side failed to close down David Bridges who created space for himself
and slotted home.
Chances continued at both ends with Street denying Ross and George Thomson striking the angle of post and cross bar.
The Nailers levelled after a defensive mix up between Jason Lee and Jordon Yong allowed Jon Froggett to win a 50:50 tackle to set up
Kieran Wells to finish.
With seven minutes remaining George Thomson, who a few minutes earlier had been denied by the wordwork again, headed home David Bell's cross to give Lynn the lead once more.
The were to be denied, however, when Froggatt headed home at the far post from an Edridge cross four minutes into injury time.
