All About Nail Guns

If you can not say, the whole thing will be slightly slower housing projects at this time. We have a few tricks up sleeve to improve our public, so do not go anywhere! Meanwhile, I think I want to continue where I left off with all our air compressor last week. This time, I thought I’d discuss air powered or pneumatic nail guns.

Nail guns are generally task-oriented, so you use the best nail gun to whatever you’re working on. For farmers do a good amount of light carpentry work, this could be a brad nailer or may be a finish nailer. If you’re close to some wood frame 2x while refinishing a basement or building a warehouse, then you will want a framing nailer.

All About Nail Guns

Here is a list of nail guns and how I use them.

1. Brad nailer: A brad nailer is pretty much the jack of all trades for hobbyists and self-realization. It fired the nail has a length from about 1/2 “to 1 1/4”, may be slightly longer, depending on the application. Pedicure station 18, in which if you are not familiar with the larger number of smaller nails. I use a brad nails to install all baseboards and window decoration in our first home. We also use a project to assemble our sliding drawer. You can not use a really long nails in you can not let them to assemble 2 × 4 or anything majorly big. There are several different manufacturers on the market and usually runs about $ 100 new. This is a perfect first nail gun.

2. Finish nailer: These nailers are a little older with 15 or 16 ga nails. They are also capable of taking much longer nails. This is more suitable for special projects or cutting wood. We use a fingernail to grow MDF wall panel sections as nails need to go through the 3/4 “thick MDF, 1/2” thick drywall and then into 2x stud wall. Price wise, they are not more money brad nailers.

3. Framing nailer: This is a large number of nail gun. They shoot tip flats conventional frame most of us are familiar with. They are not very useful for smaller projects when they are too strong for the windows and doors of the trim. Framing nailers are less expensive than Brad or finish nailers and can run about $ 200 for a new gun. They worthwhile though considering how much time you can save up to frame a basement or a home addition.

4. Pin nailer: These guns are significantly smaller than even the brad nailers. If you can not tell from the name, they shoot, very thin very small nails are designed to not leave a noticeable holes on your project. Disadvantages? They are subtle, somewhat easier to break and not ideal for all projects. You can not use this gun for most projects cutting windows or doors, the long nails is just not big enough to grip or something heavy. The nail gun is absolutely perfect for notes, small thin piece of wood that would look stupid with large holes in them or otherwise parted with larger foundations. Pin nailers are not cheap either. Good guns can take more than a decent framing nailer !!

5. Stapler: Staplers can be useful for certain applications that nails not only provide full force. How? Well, like fabric or thin plywood. You can not cover the chair with nails, you need something to grab fabric. Price Staplers usually about the price of a brad nailer. I’ve never actually used one myself, but I did not work on any project will require one.
