Q:What watts does motor pull, will it run off of a thousand watt inverter?
by|Jun 25, 2020
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  I do not think your 1000-watt inverter will be capable of supplying enough AC electrical power to run this unit. In a perfect world, this unit will still draw at least 1200 volt amps (not Watts since this is an AC motor) . In reality, the VA consumption is 25-60% greater than the wattage when a Power Factor (a measure of a motors efficiency when operating) is added into the calculation..

    Q:Can you use different tools with this compressor
    by|Jun 6, 2020
    4 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  Short answer is yes. The compressor has rated air flows at different pressures. You must make sure the tool you want to use can operate at the compressor's rated flow and pressure. Air flow is measured at CFM (cubic feet per minute) and pressure is measured at PSI (pounds per square inch). In other words, you have to match the tool's specifications to the compressor's specifications.

    A:  I would assume you can use it with other pneumatic tools but I use mine for brad nailers and around the house for my car tires and cleaning up things with air. My neighbor has one and he use his with a hand sender.

    A:  I use all compressor tools with this compressor with no issues

    by|Jun 12, 2020

    A:  Yes, you can use other tools with the compressor. It is a standard air tool connection. You will need to look at the airflow requirements of the tool you want to use (the CFM if I am recalling the acronym correctly) to ensure the compressor can support the tool.

      Answer This Question

      A:  18 gauge brads are thin nails typically used for inside trim work. I think an exterior framing nail would work better.

      by|May 25, 2020

      A:  Yes it would but galvanized nails or screws would last longer and be stronger

      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes , you'll need a fence coil nail gun though with 1 3/4" galvanized fencing nails ..... Ask the Home Depot person for the right nails for a fence ..... 2" nails will work , but they might "come through" the back side of the rail , they might be too long , depending on how deep the nail "sets" in the picket

      by|May 24, 2020

      A:  18 gauge brads are thin nails used for inside trim work. I think an exterior framing nail would work better. Requires a different nail gun and maybe a larger compressor.

      by|May 25, 2020

      A:  The compressor plugs in. It would be mote than adequate to nail fence rails to the post as well as nailing slats to the rail.

      Q:It says brad nail/staple/finishing nails, what size staples can you use in this gun?
      by|May 20, 2020
      3 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  That is a brad nailer. I purchased this combo, the gun is an 18 ga. brad nailer. You need a separate staple gun, about $90.

      by|May 24, 2020

        A:  No staples, only brads

        by|May 23, 2020

          A:  The 18 gauge brad nailer does not use staples. I double checked on DeWalt website under model# DWFP12233. Under specications states fastener type as 18 gauge brad nails. Nothing about staples or finishing nails.

          Q:Can you use different size brad nails.. Not just 18.. will 16 brad work?
          by|Apr 28, 2020
          5 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  As far as I know you have to use 18 gauge nails only the length of the nail can be changed

          by|May 1, 2020

          A:  I would not use 16 gauge nails. The gun is designed for the thinner 18 gauge brads (nails). The gun is not rated for multiple nail sizes.

          by|Apr 30, 2020

          A:  To be honest I use only 18.

          by|May 2, 2020

            A:  You should not mix 18 gauge nail gun with 16 gauge nails. It might be ok if tool is rated dual.

            by|May 2, 2020

            A:  Only 18 gauge

                  by|May 1, 2020

                  A:  Yes it can. But you have to by a tire inflator not included with the combo kit. There are several different types available on the Home Depot website. Relatively inexpensive. I got mine at the local Home Depot store.
