What are the advantages of an angled nail gun vs. one that has a straight clip?

Asked by Bodean April 8, 2021
2
Answers

An angled nail gun can drive nails at a steeper angle for projects that require toenailing or attaching 2 pieces of wood together where one is in a fixed position and the other is not like attaching, nailing a railing baluster to the rail and the stair tread. It can also perform all the nailing jobs that a straight nailer does. In addition, it allows you to drive a nail in tight spaces. I would say if you only have one nail gun it should be an angled nail driver and you will never need a straight one, the opposite is not true.

I don't know the answer to this, but I do know this gun is worth full price and then some.As a pro carpenter I use this gun daily, and it's never let me down in the years I've owned it. Greatest 15g battery nailer on the market and I've used them all. Far better than Hitachi and DeWalt to know just a few. If your a pro, get this gun. Otherwise I assume the lesser brands may suite your needs.

Just bought this gun and it works outstanding! Just that it throws a spark from the exit point of the nail. Is that normal?

It shouldn’t, you take it back to where you purchased it or send it to Milwaukee Tools for repair or replacement. By the you may be using the wrong gage nail/ brads!

WORKED GREAT UNTIL IT DIDNT
Fired less than a box of nails through it and it just stopped w/ the driver stuck in the out (fired) position and will not go back in. I cant even remove the remainder of the nails from the magazine. Cordless is cool and has its advantages but i wish i never sold my Hitachi finish nailer, never sell your back up option when buying newer technology. Now dealing w/ the fix/exhange is going to be a headache and something i didnt expect to have to do considering the cost of this bulky piece of plastic.
by 3XTheManBehindTheGun
Works great when it does
Bought this nailed to install baseboards to make the process simple. But sometimes it’s frustrating because somehow it jams and nails get stuck bent and I gotta take it apart every time.

no good, cheap, heavy, bad
I am a huge milwaukee fan. I use both m12 and m18 tools. I was very excited to buy this nailer for tongue and groove ceiling installation. Shot about 10 nails, then the gun misfired and shot a nail thru the front sleeve. ( see photos). Cleared the jam, started again, went through about 25 nails, did the same thing. Returned the gun and got my money back. The last thing I need is one of my guys hurt or to waste time clearing misfires. I also fully expected interchangeable tips, especially for 45 degree shooting, and at the very least, a soft case. We did the job with $135 pneumatic guns. No jams, no misfires, cheaper.

Although I gave this tool five stars and rated it excellent, the first one did not work at all. I have a bunch of other Milwaukee tools and never had that happen so I'll overlook it this time. I took it to the local Home Depot store and the nice lady there exchanged it for another one that has worked very well since then with not a moment of trouble. No jams at all. It doesn't seem to care what brand the nails are, or what size they are, (within the sizes specified in the manual) all work equally well. The adjustment to set the depth of the nail head worked easily for me, no complaints there. It does vary a bit with the length of the nail which is to be expected - a longer nail has more friction going in than a short nail and therefore requires more force. Some reviewers complained that it was hard to place the nails exactly where you wanted them. While it does have moulded-in lines that when intersected do place the nails, they are hard to see because they are the same dark color as the nose piece. I painted the lines with an artist's brush with white Sherwin-Williams Exterior acrylic latex paint (sorry, Behr) and this helps a great deal in alignment. See the photos.

I switched over to milwaukee about 2 years ago, I remodel homes that I purchase to sell and the main reasoning for switching is to go cordless and compressor-less no irritating air hose or extension cords in my life anymore i just grab a battery pack my milwaukee tool and nails. This sped up my production alot. If you don't own Milwaukee brand power tool I do not know what you are doing with your life. They are just that GOOD. Just 1 of many great tools from Milwaukee only found at the home depot locally in my area.

A well-balanced cordless finish nailer that does not lack power, the comfortable and balanced feel belies the weight of the tool. This nailer, manufactured by Milwaukee in China, brings cordless and brushless technology to finish nailing. While a little heavier than a pneumatic tool, the balance of the nailer makes it easy to maneuver into tight spaces, without being hampered by an air hose. A choice of sequential or contact firing is available (though, for finish work, the need for the contact firing may not be a high priority) and adjustment is provided for penetration depth. Turning the tool on and off requires depressing the “on-off” button and holding it depressed for a few seconds, to bring the tool to life. Collated nails (34 degree angle) ranging from 1 ¼ inch to 2 ½ inch are accommodated, up to 110 nails at a time. A pleasant surprise was the instantaneous response, no “ramping up”, as soon as you pull the trigger (or bounce the tip in contact mode), emulating the response of a pneumatic tool. If a jam should occur, access to remove the jam is easily accomplished without the need for tools. The tool incorporates “smart electronics” to provide overload protection, as well as “dry-fire” protection, when the nail chamber is empty. A 5 year tool warranty and 2 year battery warranty is provided. After firing 200 2 ½ inch nails, the last 100 in contact mode, rapid fire, there were still 3 of 4 “bars” left on the 2.0 Amp-Hour battery. When installed into the tool, there is a little play in the battery. This did not affect the operation of the tool, but was more of a psychological hazard seeing the battery moving back and forth. A belt clip is provided which can be moved to either side (or removed), however, when mounted on the left side of the tool (for a right-hander) it occupies the same position that your left hand will be placed, if you are using your left hand for more precise placement, which is uncomfortable…as I said, the clip can be removed if this is a problem. An LED, which momentarily illuminates the work area is provided, for finish work, you will probably want more illumination than that for precise work. The only unknown is the lifetime of the electronics contained within the tool…though any “infant mortality” failures should occur within the warranty period. All in all, a nicely thought out tool.
