Jason H asked What does one use a pneumatic stapler for?

I bought a finish trim set from Bostitch that includes a Brad Nailer, Finish Nailer, and a Stapler. I know what the first 2 can be used for, but I have not found a use for the stapler. What are some examples where one would use a power stapler with 1 1/2″ staples for the home? Attaching a subfloor maybe?

And got the following answer:

The Stapler you got is called a Crown Stapler (or Narrow Crown Stapler). They are different than those used for flooring. A Crown Stapler is excellent for fastening thin material. An example would be attaching the thin MDF cabinet back to the cabinet frame.

buddy asked What is the difference in the degree angles of a pneumatic framing nail gun?

I am about to purchase a framing nail gun and I am not a professional framer. I have noticed there are guns with 21, 28, & 34 degree angles on their magazines. Why is this?
And what is the difference? I found a nail gun that will adjust to accommodate all three angles. What is the preferred nail guns angle used by professional framers?

And got the following answer:

The different angles take different nails. The 30-34 degree take the paper collated nails (such as Paslode), the 20-22 degree take full head plastic collated nails (Duo Fast, Porter-Cable FR350). 28 degree is wire collated (Bostitch). I would be VERY skeptical of any nailer that claimed to shoot all three. There is a huge difference in angle when it comes to the piston that actually drives the nail. Often, when a tool does 3 different things, it does each marginally rather than focusing on one task and doing it well. I prefer the 30-34 degree framers. I have a Porter Cable FC350. Now that Paslode has come up with a full head nail that fits these guns, I really like it. It holds more nails than the other styles, is a little lighter (especially the magnesium guns), and requires less maintenance. Hope this helps.

Spoul asked What model is my Bostitch framing nailer?

I purchased a used Bostitch framing nailer at a garage sale but cant tell what model it is to get rebuild kit.
All the stickers are worn and there’s no stamped information on it. It is an older gun so I’m unable to match it on the Bostitch website.
I put a couple pictures of the gun on my website:

And got the following answer:

My best guess is it’s an earlier form of the “F28WW”, which simply means it uses 28 degree, wire welded stick (vs. coiled) nails. The other option would be a version of the “F21PL” which is a plastic collated stick nail. Holding my “F21PL” against your pictures it appears yours has a little more angle which is why I think it’s the wire collated nailer.

I would go through the different models of Wire Welded nailers and see what rebuild kit they use, my guess is they mostly use the same kit, so try that one.

I use to sell Bostitch nailers, and they usually hold up well, even when they look like your. So you may not need to rebuild it unless it isn’t working correctly. If it has air leaking when you plug it into a compressor I would put 6 – 10 drops of air tool oil in the air hose connector, then let it set for a day, moving it around occasionally. If the air leaks the same, you need to replace the o-rings, if it leaks less, try again, and if it stops leaking your great.

You can also look up “tool repair” in the yellow pages, and they may be able to give you more advise.

Hope this helps,

Alan

n5vhf_gene asked What framing nails go in a bostitch n16 >?

I have a Bostitch N16 nail gun and cant get the right nails. Its an older model and the newer nails I get at the Depot dont work. Anyone have a few nails laying around with the numbers on the box. Thanx Gene

And got the following answer:

not 100% sure, this site might help. Found some #’s for you, but check with pictures of your nailer on the site to be sure.

baja67 asked what is the advantage between clipped head nails and round head for air framing nailers?

buying framing nailer and want to find out which type to buy. What are advantages and disadvantages of clipped verses round head nails

And got the following answer:

Don has it right… The clipped head nails take up less space, and so, you can get more of em together… but a full round head nail, does hold material better.

You will also want to look at how do you want to buy your nails…. coil nails are typically sold by the case… stick nails you can buy by the box, if you want… So, it kinda goes by how often are you going to use the nail gun.

I have a coil gun myself, Stanly/Bostitch brand, and I’m very happy with it.

Most framing nailers require about 90psi, so, you need a good air compressor too…It’s ability to keep up with your nail gun will have a big impact on how well it works for you.

Good Luck

Salami and Orange Juice asked Framing nailer – suggestions?

I want to buy a framing nailer, but don’t want to spend a lot.
Something used – or refurb would be good.

What is a good brand to look for on ebay or craigslist?

Also, what is the deal with the degrees (21deg. 34degrees etc.)

I thought these pounded nails straight into the studs, but if they do so at an angle, is it to form a better bond? I assume You would pop 2 nails into the top plate and they would penetrate the stud like so: \ / to grip the stud better .

If this is the case, which degree is best for light framing?

And got the following answer:

Bostitch or Porter-Cable. I’ve got a P-C and it has worked great for years.
The degrees is the amount of angle that the nails are fed into the driver (where they get shot out of). The higher the angle, the better the gun can get into tight or awkward places.
A gun with a zero degree feed would form a right angle between the nail clip and the piston (driver). Get it ?
