Nail Guns Make Rough Carpentry Easier, But They Need To Be Handled With Care

New Nail Gun to Hit the Market?

Be certain that you always follow the building code requirements for both the type of nail, the shape of the head and the depth to which it must be driven. Be sure the nail gun you decide to purchase will work with code-compliant nails. Thirty years ago, I was using the most popular and rugged nail gun that was made at the time. My Senco SN4 gun was an air-powered beast and drove thousands of nails per workday without jamming.

With stick nailers, you need to pay attention to the angle and collation style of the nails to make sure that they will fit the tool you’re using (unlike coil nailers, which all use the same style of nails). Stick nailers have a long magazine which accommodates two sticks of anywhere from 25 to 40 nails each. The nails are collated together at an angle so that the head of each nail is nested above the head of the nail in front of it.

Nail Guns: The Power and the Pain

Created by one “David Wiggins,” this DeWalt-themed nail gun is said to be able to “drive a 6d nail through a 2×4 at 200 yards.” For those of you interested in “long distance building,” however, this isn’t what it seems. It’s apparently nothing more than a cosmetic touch-up to a real firearm. Some folks simply have too much time on their hands. It raises a questionregarding construction nomenclature, however. “Nail gun” or “pneumatic nailer?” The term “pneumatic nailer” hasas far as I can recallnever come out of my mouth. That said, it was recently pointed out to me that times are changing, and thepneumatic term is gaining in popularity.So, whichdo you prefer?Take the poll.
