What angle nails does it use?

I am looking at a Ridgid R350CHE but there is no listing of the angle of the nail used. Will this shoot 30° Paslode nails?
Asked by: Rick
the 350CHE uses clipped head nails, most of the pasload nails are full head. and yes the 350CHE uses 30 degree

Hi, I purchased a nail gun Model # R350CHD and I can't find nails for it anymore will the nails for the Model # R350CHE be compatible?

I have been to Home Depot and we can not find nails that will go with the specs for our gun. I will probably have to order them online but I wanted to make sure that I am getting the right nails for my gun.
Asked by: Shells
I don't know where you live but I had the same problem with my local Home Depot, a little more than a month after purchasing my clipped head nailer they changed product lines and dropped the clipped head nails from stock. The good news is while HD might not have them I found another big box store nearby that keeps plenty in stock. Also the brand of nail doesn't matter as long as the degree is correct for your nailer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rigid Full Head Framing Nailer I like the nailer because it's light and strong even the air copresor is set to 90 psi only. Also the waranty of rigid is life time compared to others you have to buy extended warranty.The color is very nice because you can see you tool right away in the distance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great nailer good price I started working with my brother last week and bought this after half a day driving nails by hand, it is a life saver it was 0 or 1 degree today depending on the thermometer you looked at, it took awhile to get our compressor going but once it started the nailer was going at it problem free. It has worked great the 2 days I have used the only draw back to the gun is that it will not feed the last 3-4 nails and that is the ONLY reason it got a 4 instead of a 5. My brother is used to hitachi, but he agrees with me this is a GREAT nailer. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a nailer, It works great and is very simple to use, and affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 1/2 In. Clipped Head Framing Nailer I have used this nailer for everything from framing to fencing and it preformed great. I never had it jam or miss fire. I have talked to other contractors and they prefered the ridgid to some of the more expensive brands that don't even have half the features of the ridgid.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Framing Nailer I like Ridgid tools but am not impressed by this nailer. I followed oiling instructions but after a few days the tool fouled and would not operate. I returned it and reluctantly accepted an identical replacement. I doubled the amount of oiling recommended and it still misfired at one point - but after adding even more oil - it began operating again. I hope this tool continues to operate for the long term. It's not like I do a ton of framing :).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total piece of JUNK Diaphragm is too slow to properly bump fire. Entire nose assembly fell apart twice. Trigger fell out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 5 Star Nail Gun, in stock local selection of nails ok I was in need of my own framing nailer (tired of borrowing my dads 15 yr old Paslode when I was doing something). I had to order this one online since none of the stores around me stock it, only the round head gun. I wanted this one because if either of us were doing a big project we could have both guns going at the same time and not have to worry about picking up the wrong nails when reloading. The better price was a big plus, and there are some extra features the Paslode doesn't have like the tool-free depth adjustment and jam clearing mechanism. This gun has worked flawlessly so far, several hundred nails without any issue. Mostly 2" ring shank and some 3". All nails have been the full offset head (paslode round drive). I decided to buy this after having to borrow my dads gun to re-frame rotted window structure found when replacing the window. I have since used this Rigid the replace the sheathing and install Hardie Plank on the surrounding wall. The grip rite nails are more cost effective than the paslode, but not the full head design. In either case the in stock selection of nails at my local stores is limited, compared to the full head nails. Limited stock selection of nails is the only down side I have so far.
