A: Tom, brads are "glued" together so they form a cohesive strip, usually referred to as a collated strip, to put into the nailer. "Collated" simply means they line up one beside the next, like pages in a book are collated. The same applies to finishing nails. Common nails, box nails, and roofing nails also come in collated strips for their respective nail guns, but they are not glued; they are held together by some other means (e.g., welded wire or paper tape).
A: Coated, helps keep the brad in the piece of work.
A: The nails are held together in a strip with a small amount of glue.
A: It's what holds them together so you can place them in nail gun
A: nails are arranged per sheet
A: As far as I know they're pretty generic and should fit most any nailer
A: Any brand of nails will fit their designed "type" of nailer. These Freeman brad nails will work in the Campbell 18ga Brad nailer as long as the brad nailer accepts this particular length of 18ga Brad.
A: Yes, these should work well, but you have to be careful to aim straight at the center of the piece they extend into or they could come out the side. 1.5 inch would work better, not require precise aim.
A: If you have a electric or cordless nailer. I wouldn't use anything over 1"
A: I am tempted to say, "probably not," but there is not enough information provided for me to answer that question. Maybe somebody else can. What type of material (e.g., mdf, softwood, hardwood)? How thick is the material? Are you building these boxes yourself or are they already built? If possible, I would look for some way of attaching boxes in case you ever want to undo the attachment. This sounds to me like a job better suited to screws than to any kind of nail or brad. If you don't plan to unfasten the boxes, how about using a few dabs of construction adhesive?
A: Personally, I probably wouldn't use it for that UNLESS the particular material (like plywood-?) would lend itself well to assembly with a nail gun. Note: I actually have the 16-gauge Ryobi nailer so that I could have the longest possible "nails" at my disposal.
A: As long as wood is 3/4”
A: The 18ga Brad nailer should work perfectly for your project.
