Customer Questions & Answers

what are the best uses for this type of nailer?

Asked by: Anonymous
It's a brad nailer so it's a good tool for anything that doesn't support a lot of weight. Such as putting backing on a cabinet/pantry. Making art for the wall. Joining two pieces of wood....things like that. I used my 18 gauge to build a can rack holder, a wooden family brand, and a huge 14 foot tree.

Difference between the AF505 and the newer AF505N. Does anyone know?

The pictures indicate a slightly different rubber nose and bumper, but it may be that the nail guide assy is slightly different. I can't tell from the pics.
Asked by: albe
Yes, the Makita 2" Brad Nailer, 18 Ga. (AF505N) has a narrower nose design for easier nailing access in confined areas.
