Treat A Nail Gun As You Would A Loaded Handgun

Ask the Builder: Working safely with a nail gun

I can tell you these tools are enormous time-savers, and theyre wicked machines that can be deadly. 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, attach plywood or oriented strand board (OSB) sheathing to walls, roofs and so forth.

Nail guns can be hugely helpful but also deadly dangerous

The tools can be adjusted so that you drive the nail the proper depth. Be certain that you always follow the building code requirements for 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.

It always had enough power to operate all day long. You can get electric-powered nail guns, but the only ones Ive seen are finish nailers. I think it will take a significant advancement in technology to have a cordless battery-powered framing nail gun. Before you make your purchase, calculate all the costs.
