What's the difference between a "Straight" finish nail and a Finish Nail

Asked by Bruce September 18, 2019
2
Answers

Finish nailers come in 2 types, straight and angled. Depending on the application and the work space constraints, an angled nailer may provide the best solution to fit into a tight place. If you have an angled nailer you must buy nails packaged for an angled nailer. If you have a straight nailer you must buy nails packaged for straight nailer. The nails are the same after being fired.

What's the difference between 16 guage and 18 guage Brad nailer

Asked by Rk September 2, 2018
3
Answers

The guage is the diameter of the nail, with 16 being the larger thickness, both are finish nails. The lengths can be similar, 2 inch, as an example, however, the larger diameter 16 guage gives you much greater holding power. I use my 16 for trim work that may be exposed to heavy contact with people or objects. The 16 g does leave a larger hole to patch and can split thinner wood. For door casing I use a 16 on the thicker edge anchored to the 2x4, and my 18 g on the thinner edge fastened to the door jamb. For large heavy crown or basboard, I use the 16 all around to ensure a tight fit. One way I remember the inverse description of guage, think of how many nails you would have in a one inch strip. 18 would give you give you more per inch, due to it being thinner than a 16, per inch.

will this gun double fire?

Asked by bob October 16, 2015

Answer

When using the bump action trigger, be careful of unintentional double fires. To avoid double fires do not engage the tool against the work surface with a strong force and allow the tool to recoil fully after each actuation.

Bought this nailer to replace an old Paslode that crumbled inside and to hard and costly to replace parts. Pretty much went by reviews and I own several DeWalt tools that seem to perform well. Ordered online and bought through Home Depot. Delivery time was exceptional considering during Covid (2 days). Giving it 4 stars because I needed it to finish a trim job so took it to the site and it would not fire the nails. Luckily, I had a brad nailer with me that I used to finish the job. The DeWalt nailer would just shoot a small “piff” of air and no nail. I did not have time to figure out what the problem was on the site, but at home I discovered that the firing pin was stuck. IT would not let a nail enter the firing chamber and the pin would not move. So, I put a little oil on it and used a screwdriver to move the pin back and forth. It seemed to loosen up and I moved the pin up and push the nails in so as there would be one nail in the firing chamber. The nailer was able to fire the nail and several more. I just hoped that it would wear and loosen for the next job. I have not had any problems with it since. The second reason for the 4 stars is that the nails do not slide into the nailer very easily. There is a flat spring that puts pressure on the nails as you slide them in. Once in, you must pull them on through or use a set of nails to push them down into the gun. Not a big issue but keeps it from getting a 5. Also, I would have liked to see the case designed to hold some nails. There appears to be plenty of space to have molded a small block for storage. So far it works good and would recommend it.

Have begun a series of home improvement projects, and knew a finish nailer would be a fine additon to my tool collection. Though I didn't have any opportunity to test any of the units, I did visit a number of stores to at least inspect the units for build, heft, weight and feature set, and the Dewalt D51257K came out on top of my evaluation. Subsuquently, after the unit arrived, i used it on my first job, replacing exterior door trim. Unit performed flawlessly, with no jams or malfunctions. I'll be adding additonal nailers to my armory, and will be looking to DeWALT for those too.

As a custom closet installer it is critical to have a gun less than 12” tall. We currently use a Duo Fast 764 by far best gun ever made. They don’t make them or produce replacement parts anymore so I’ve been looking for a while and have tried several brands even other models of Dewalt but I gotta says this model is the best one. I only wish that they sold them in stores, right now you have to get them on line.
