I would use the 16GA nailer. The 18GA brad nailer works well for light/small boards/molding...but it seems like the pine shiplap may be a bit heavy for the 18GA brad nails.
I have to admit, this was not clear to me until I tried to put nails into the gun. Yes, it says angled - but to a first-time nail-gun owner like me, it was not clear that you needed special nails for this. Once you order the proper nails - from DeWalt or a compatible set, this guy is awesome.
I have 2 and they are solid. No problems here
No. Only 16 gauge will fit. DeWalt makes a 15 gauge nailer as well.
Items have to be mailed to dewalt. So basically it will cost more to get a replacement than buying a replacement
Hey. The dimensions given in the HD advertisement specifications for the Dewalt 300 22” box are the exterior measurements. 21 1/2” length, 13 1/8” width, and 12” height.
These are the inside dimension: -Height 12 1/8" -Length 21 3/4" -Width 13 1/8"
You could with construction adhesive and shooting the nails at opposite angles. My preference is using trim head screws.
If you put it in standing up on an angle it may just fit but it definitely doesn't fit comfortably, it would be very awkward.
