Answer: 
I use a regular compressor. A couple drops of air tool oil in the air nipple before use is sufficient for lubrication, and is not needed each time. Too much oil will eventually gum up the works.

Answer: 
I used a Porter Cable 6 gallon pancake compressor which is oil-free. Just put a few drops into the inlet of the gun and you're good to go. I know this as I called their customer support to ask them the same question once I got the gun and was reading the instruction manual.

Answer: 
You can use an oil-free or oil based compressor. Either type will power your brad nailer. Regardless of which compressor you use, it is recommended that you add pneumatic oil to your nail gun periodically to ensure proper function and longevity of the internal parts. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Answer: 
I set PSI on compressor output for 50 PSi for my baseboards.
At 90 PSI, 1.5" nails went through and partly out 1.5" board.
There is a dial on head of nailer but no marking as to increase or decrease and I had no luck at 90 PSI
Test fire into 2 X 4 or 2 X 3 and when you get close to desired, test on same material as work.

This brad nailer does not have a depth adjustment. You can regulate air pressure to the tool (to a degree) to change the depth the nail drives into the material you're shooting into.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for price!! I am a DIYer! I wouldn't call myself professional but I do use my nail gun almost every day! I had one that was old and finally gave out on me. After reading MANY MANY reviews stating from others that this nail gun was great for its price and simple projects I went ahead and took the chance! This turned out to be a great nail gun for just everyday DIY projects. We have done nothing major with it but it has done a wonderful job with no problems yet and I've had it a month! This is a great nail gun and I would recommend it to anyone looking to purchase something a little more price friendly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job At 90 PSI, drove 1 1/2" 18 gauge nail through and partly out 1 1/2" board. Since I wanted it for 3/8" thick pine baseboards, I finally found that 50 PSI worked pretty well unless I hit corner steel. Had some mis-fires until I found I had to hold/press more firmly against baseboard work surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value! Nailer works well even with 2" brads. Great purchase and it was inexpensive. When it wears out, I'll buy another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service I purchased two different Nailers at the same time. When I received them I checked them out and one of them I couldn't connect the air line. I called customer service and talked with a guy named Mike. After explaining that one would fit and the other wouldn't and sending him pics of each,Mike called and asked if I would be alright with putting a new intake nozzle on rather than shipping mine back to them and having a new one shipped back. I got the nozzle a few days later installed it and have a great nailer now. They both work great and you can't beat the price.

I would recommend another brand for one main reason. The "tip" or "safety lever" that needs to be depressed inorder to use the nailer marks up the surface. In addition, you need to push down firmly to bring the tip flush before you fire so you cannot avoid marking up the surface. Because you must be flush with the surface, you cannot fashion any type or rubber guard yourself because the nailer won't fire. Lesson learned... spend a little more for another unit.

I had bought a similar device from Lowe's, a Bostick 18 Gauge Nailer and paid over $100 for it. Took it back as I thought I could do my top nailing manually, decided to buy the NuMax from HD online for lots less $$$$. . . .Couldn't be happier, not one single jam while installing 700 sq feet of flooring and matching quarter round. Highly recommend!
