A: This is a brad nailer for Brad nails. Does not shoot finishing nails bur brads will work depending on what you want to use it for. It's been a great nailer for me over the past couple years.
A: Hi Lisa. A brad nailer is a light-duty Naler used for for trim work, including narrow trim around windows or doors, shoe moulding and quarter-round moulding. Thanks, Michelle PORTER-CABLE
A: Yes . One or two drops of pneumatic gun oil . It should come with the nailer .
A: Yes, but just a drop or two............... it should have been stated in the owners manual.
A: These nailers are designed to be used without oil.
A: It is oil free.
A: The manual says no. I haven’t oiled it and have not had any issues with it.
A: No, the manual states, these nail guns are designed to be operated without adding oil. Doing so will cause issue with the firing mechanism over time. This is different than a lot of other guns so that is why there is confusion out there.
A: Hi jb12. Yes, the Nailer drives Drives 18 gauge nails from 5/8-inch to 2-inch length. Thank you. Lee PORTER-CABLE Social media Team
A: Any brand of nails will work as long as they are the correct Guage.
A: The manual specifies a type and size. Try the different ones and see if they work but don't over do it. Try a small quantity.
A: As long as the nails meet the compatibility specifications, it is not necessary to use PORTER-CABLE specific nails.
A: I have used other brands but I cannot use galvanized brads of another brand.
A: I've used different brand nails with no problem
