Nail Guns: The Power And The Pain

These powerful and productive tools have saved me weeks of labor over the years, but they have also caused me some pain. Nail guns are indeed guns, and, as the name implies, they can be dangerous if you don’t follow all safety rules and use common sense. Nail guns drive both long and short nails into wood, even dense oak, in a fraction of a second with a single blow. Driving a regular nail with a hammer is also dangerous. On more than one occasion, I have been hit in the face with a regular nail that ricocheted off wood when it was struck unevenly by a regular hammer.

Nail guns can be hugely helpful but also deadly dangerous

They must be treated just the same as you would treat a loaded handgun or a rifle. Lets talk about what these tools can do first. Most of them shoot an assortment of nails that allow you to do just about every rough carpentry task I can think of. You can bang together stud walls, laminate structural headers, or attach plywood or oriented strand board sheathing to walls and roofs. The tools can be adjusted so that you drive the nail the proper depth.
