Knowing What To Know About Nailers Part 2

Where finish nailers countersink the nail purposely so you can then fill and disguise the hole and the nail, framing nailers are not nearly as subtle. Framing Nailers are for nailing almost all non-metal woodwork that could be considered construction. A typical framing nailer can drive 6d, 8d, 10d, 12d or 16d nails.

The pneumatic air framing nailer is the most relied upon by wood workers. Although having to not only purchase but deal with the compressed air tanks may look to be a hassle, many times it out weighs the annoyance simply because of of its powerful ability to drive nails through any hard surface easily. In addition using compressed air means the user doesn’t have to deal with the effects of chemical corrosion that may occur in gas or powder actuated nail guns.

Brad Nailers such as the Porter Cable CFBN125A, are primarily used for furniture building and roofing guns, as the name implies are for laying shingles and are designed to most efficiently drive nail sizes suited for the task.
