  • How To Use A Decorative Nailer

    An essential accessory for anyone in the furniture building or upholstery trade, the decorative nailer eliminates hours of hammering decorative tacks into furniture - vastly reducing production time.

    Ready to get started? Keep reading to learn how to use a decorative nailer.

    UFFY Deco Nailer

    To provide some background, decorative nails are typically found along the edge or seam of an upholstered piece of furniture. Deco nails look similar to a thumbtack, but have a cupped head (resembling an umbrella) when viewing from the side. Before the deco nailer was an option, decorative tacks were hammered into upholstered furniture one by one; a process both time consuming and tedious.

    Decorative Nails

    Thankfully, Uffy Tools introduced the TH-T-DECO1 pneumatic decorative upholstery nailer, which eliminates the redundant hammering of deco nails into upholstery trim. What really makes this Uffy deco nailer unique is its operation. Simply add a handful of correct size (7/16" head by 1/2" shank) deco nails into the magazine, and the tool will sort out the rest during operation.

    What happens inside the magazine is something similar to a tornado, as the tool aligns each decorative nail into an automatically fed magazine.

    No more expensive collated tacks. No manual alignment.

    The beauty of this Uffy - it does all the work for you. Just make sure you have an air compressor that can provide 6.72 CFM at 90 PSI.

  • How To Maintain An Air Compressor

    It goes without saying that proper maintenance is key to getting the maximum potential out of your air-powered tools and compressor. Developing (and sticking to) a maintenance routine can save not only time, but also money. That's why our friends at RolAir developed the following air compressor maintenance guide, as originally published on their Zero Sick Days blog.

    Keep in mind, RolAir advises that proper safety equipment should always be worn while servicing your air compressor. Do not start, operate or service your machine until you read and fully understand the owner’s manual.

    The following chart specifies routine air compressor maintenance procedure, organized by required service intervals.

    rolair maintenance chart

    CHECK OIL LEVEL: Recommended service interval - daily.

    Prior to daily operation, make a habit of checking the air compressor's oil level for the compressor pump and engine (if compressor is gas-powered). Every direct-drive, hand-carry air compressor has a dipstick to check and maintain the proper oil level. The dipstick also functions as a crankcase vent. NEVER operate a direct-drive unit without the factory-supplied dipstick. RolAir belt-driven air compressors are equipped with a sight gauge to make the task of checking oil levels easier. Always maintain the oil level to read 2/3 full on the sight gauge.

    RolAir Check Oil Site Glass

    DRAIN MOISTURE FROM TANK: Recommended service interval - daily.

    One or more drain valves are installed to allow moisture to be drained on a daily basis from the compressor storage tank(s). Open drains slowly to prevent scale, rust or debris from becoming expelled at a high rate of speed.

    How to open rolair drain valve

    INSPECT AIR FILTERS: Recommended service interval - daily.

    When checking filters, make sure the filter housing is structurally sound and the element is intact and free of dust and debris. If you need to replace the filter, you can obtain the part number from your owner’s manual.

    CHECK FOR UNUSUAL NOISE OR VIBRATION: Recommended service interval - daily.

    While the air compressor is running, listen for any rattling or knocking sounds. It is best to perform this step after checking the belt tension, bolts and condition of vibration pads.

    INSPECT BELT GUARD: Recommended service interval - daily.

    Ensure the belt guard cover is firmly in place and screws are tight. Check for cracks or compromised mounting holes.

    CHECK FOR (AIR OR OIL) LEAKS: Recommended service interval - daily.

    To check for air leaks, isolate the compressor by removing any air hoses and allowing it to fill up to top pressure. When the compressor shuts off or idles down, observe the tank pressure gauge. Keeping in mind that pressure will drop slightly as the internal air temperature decreases; if the needle drops continuously, a leak is present somewhere in the system. If you can’t locate by sound, coat all fittings in a soap and water solution and watch for bubbling.

    To check for oil leaks, watch for pooling oil around the base of the pump and engine (if applicable). Also, if you find yourself having to refill the crankcase frequently, the compressor may be passing an excessive amount of oil. In any case, take the compressor to an authorized service center to diagnose and repair the issue properly.

    CLEAN THE AIR COMPRESSOR'S EXTERIOR: Recommended service interval - weekly, as required.

    Allow the air compressor to cool to room temperature before attempting to clean. Disconnect electric models from the power source. Wipe down exterior surfaces with a damp cloth. Dry thoroughly prior to operation. DO NOT spray or allow water into motorized components.

    CHECK CONDITION OF VIBRATION PADS: Recommended service interval - weekly.

    Ensure all vibration pads are in place, and the air compressor sits in a level position. If vibration pads are worn or missing, refer to your owner’s manual for replacement part numbers.

    TIGHTEN/RE-TORQUE BOLTS: Recommended service interval - weekly.

    Ensure all bolts are tight. With the air compressor at room temperature, re-torque pump bolts according to the specs in the following table:

    RolAir Torque Chart

    CHECK BELT TENSION: Recommended service interval - weekly.

    Use the diagram below to determine how much deflection is acceptable. If you determine that the belt is loose, obtain a replacement belt or Drive Pulley, and make adjustments as needed. To adjust belt tension, follow these steps:

    rolair compressor belt tension diagram

    Electric Compressor

    1. Roll the belt off the pulley and flywheel.
    2. Loosen the bolts that hold the motor to the saddle.
    3. Increase (slightly) the distance between the pump and motor.
    4. Ensure the pulley and flywheel are properly aligned.
    5. Tighten the bolts that hold the motor to the saddle.
    6. Roll the belt onto the pulley and flywheel.
    7. Check tension. If there’s still deflection, repeat steps 1-7 until proper tension is achieved.

     

    Gas Compressor

    1. Loosen the locknuts for engine hold-down bolts; only until the washers below spin freely.
    2. Rotate the 1/2″ adjusting bolt until desired tension is reached.
    3. Re-tighten the locknuts to secure the engine.
    4. Ensure the pulley and flywheel are properly aligned.

    RolAir Gas Compressor Locknut Diagram

    CHECK OPERATION OF SAFETY VALVE: Recommended service interval - monthly.

    Locate safety relief valve (shown below) and perform a visual inspection. Look for any signs of corrosion or physical damage. With air in the system, slowly and carefully pull the ring to actuate the valve. You should hear a loud hiss of escaping air. If you are unable to open the valve, it will likely need to be replaced.

    RolAir Safety Valve

    CHANGE COMPRESSOR OIL: Recommended service interval - monthly.

    RolAir Compressor Oil Lifespan Chart

    CLEAN/CHANGE AIR FILTER: Recommended service interval - monthly.

    Clean air filters using low pressure, compressed air to remove dust and debris. If the filter cannot be cleaned sufficiently, or shows wear, obtain a replacement using the part number in your owner’s manual.

    PERFORM PUMP-UP TIME TEST: Recommended service interval - monthly.

    With the tank gauge at 0 PSI, and air line(s) disconnected, close drain valve(s) and record the amount of time it takes to build tank pressure. Periodically, test your air compressor against this pump-up time, to determine if it is operating correctly. If the time test is considerably off, contact your local service center to evaluate your compressor.

    CHECK OPERATION OF SYSTEM CONTROLS: Recommended service interval - quarterly.

    Keeping the process as simple as possible, run the compressor and force it to cycle a few times, by opening the drain valves slightly. While it’s cycling, watch the tank pressure gauge to make sure the needle is rising and falling as pressure increases and decreases.

    If it’s an electric model, listen for a brief hiss of air from the pressure switch when the motor shuts off. This signifies that any air caught between the check valve and pump has been evacuated, making for a smooth start-up when the motor kicks back in. The motor will start up again when the tank pressure drops to a certain level, depending on model.

    If it’s a gas model, you can expect to hear the engine speed decrease when the compressor has reached its top pressure setting. You’ll also hear air being discharged from the pilot valve. When the tank pressure reaches the lower setting, the pilot valve will activate the throttle control, which increases the engine RPM and starts the cycle over again.

    With these tips, and a good understanding of your air compressor, you should be ready for the long-haul.

  • What Fastener Should You Use For Deck Boards

    A common question we get this time of year, "what fastener should I use for deck boards?" Most contractors will tell you the short answer, to use a deck screw; but regional conditions and new decking materials may expand - or narrow - the list of suitable fasteners for your deck boards. Take a look at our deck fastener checklist, and learn what options work best for your decking project.

    Quik Drive Decking

    What type of fastener can I use for a traditional wood deck board?

    Standard wood decking is pretty versatile in how it can be assembled to the deck frame. The least expensive option for installing deck boards is to use framing nails, though we don't necessarily recommend it. You'll see a lot of builder-grade decks assembled with framing nails, which remains the most efficient method for installation, but can lead to some maintenance headaches down the road. Over time, the nails will start to work themselves out of the wood board, which greatly compromises holding strength - and can even make the deck dangerous to walk across if nails begin to protrude from the surface. For decking boards, we recommend using a deck screw or Scrail. Both the screw and Scrail offer improved holding strength thanks to a threaded shank, which keeps the fastener locked into place - and can be reversed, allowing for easy removal if a board needs to be replaced.

    Senco DuraSpin Deck Screw Diagram

    What coating, color or material should I choose for my decking fasteners?

    Deck boards come in a variety of materials, colors and sizes. Choosing the right type of fastener is only part of the process, you'll also need to figure out the size and variation of whichever fastener you choose. Collated deck screws are available in several different colors, coatings and materials. If you're installing composite deck boards, we recommend color matching your composite deck screws or BeckDeck Scrails. In some damp or coastal regions, or for decks that are exposed to weather regularly, you may opt for a stainless steel deck screw or Scrail to prevent rusting and corrosion over time. Most standard wood deck screws by Senco or Quik Drive will come with a basic weather guard coating as-is, if you don't opt for something higher end.

    Should I use hidden deck fasteners?

    A growing trend in designer decking, hidden deck fasteners and hidden deck screws are rapidly increasing in popularity. Hidden deck fasteners are more luxury than necessity, but for high end decks, they may prove worth the extra investment. The beauty to using hidden deck fasteners, you have a clean deck surface with no blemishes or gaps. There are currently a few options available, if you're looking toward a hidden deck fastening solution. For example, Senco offers the Mantis System, which combines elements of a deck screw with the collation of a nail. Senco Mantis Hidden Deck Fasteners are held in place with a clip, which allows the fastener to be driven into the base of a deck board at an angle. CAMO also offers a hidden deck screw system, which eliminates the need for clips, but also installs the deck fastener at a similar angle. Using a hidden fastening system creates even spacing between boards, and leaves the deck surface unblemished. However, a blemish-free deck surface does come at a cost, as hidden fastening systems typically command a higher price and require longer installation time.

    Senco Hidden Deck Fastening System

    How many fasteners do I need for my decking project?

    Different fastening systems may require different quantities of fastener to complete your deck. On average, we've found you can complete around 100 square feet of decking with approximately 450 deck screws, using two screws per joist. The true number of deck screws required ultimately depends on the width of your deck facing, and the spacing between your joists. A 3-1/2" face with 12" on center joists will run closer to 700 deck screws for 100 square feet; whereas a 5-1/2" face with 24" on center joists will only require about 225 deck screws per 100 square feet. Knowing your joist spacing and facing width will help narrow the project estimate window tremendously.

  • First Look: Senco Introduces Composite Tool & Fastener Line

    Senco is taking a big step into uncharted territory, as the company launches its full line of plastic composite finish nails and staples, as well as the tools to run these composite fasteners. A completely new concept for a brand recognized for its steel nails and staples, Senco composite fasteners are 100 percent metal-free, formed from a blend of polymer resin and fiberglass. And, while these collated plastic fasteners may sound secondary compared to their steel and metal counterparts, the reality is quite opposite.

    Senco Composite Fasteners

    The plastic polymer base for Senco composite fasteners allows these nails and staples to do some pretty neat things - things your average metal fastener can't do. These composite fasteners can be sanded, shaped, and cut without damage to router bits, cutting blades or sanding belts. Senco also claims they offer "superior holding power, excellent processing characteristics, and long-term resistance to chemicals, sunlight, and moisture." A major advantage we see at first look, no rust, corrosion or staining with these plastic nails and staples.

    But what about durability and strength?

    According to Senco, their composite finish nails hold up to two-times stronger than similar sized steel nails, BUT Senco also notes adhesives will do the heavy lifting after curing. Our take, these fasteners - particularly the composite finish and brad nails - are ideal for holding materials in place while adhesives cure. Even better, the non-metal material can be sanded or cut once the adhesive has completely set; meaning you can either leave them in place without fear of corrosion, or sand them down without damaging your tool.

    Senco composite fasteners and tool

    Other benefits these Senco plastic composite fasteners offer, no clamping set up time or waiting, they eliminate the drudgery of removing problematic fasteners and marring wood surfaces, have zero adverse affect on final product appearance and performance, all while reducing wear on sanding and cutting equipment.

    So what exactly are composite fasteners good for?

    These plastic fasteners are designed for more than meets the eye. As mentioned before, composite finish nails and staples are perfect for use with woodworking adhesives, to provide a temporary hold until the adhesive cures. Professionals and hobbyists alike benefit from the ability of the fastener to be sanded, shaped and cut. Senco 15 gauge and 18 gauge composite finish nails are also ideal for use with CNC machines for cutting, carving, drilling and machining a variety of materials without damaging router bits and saw blades. Multiple pieces of material can be stacked and attached to the spoil board with composite fasteners, to increase production output.

    Senco composite fastener for woodworking

    Senco 15 gauge composite finish nails are perfect for use with Cellular PVC adhesives, to provide a temporary hold until the adhesive cures. Industrial fabricators benefit from the use of composite nails in the production of pergolas, arbors, trellises, custom columns, flower boxes, vents, window trim, copulas and laminations.

    You may also find these composite fasteners ideal for lumber tagging. Composite fasteners will not degrade in sunlight, high heat conditions, or cause interference in microwave and RF environments - assuring a long-term, problem-free tagged product.

    What tool do you need, to use a Senco composite fastener?

    Along with the plastic composite nails and staples, Senco released seven tools, each designed to run collated composite fasteners exclusively. A finish nailer, brad nailer, hammer tacker, squeeze stapler, two 16 gauge air staplers, and a 20 gauge pneumatic stapler to be precise. Remember, you CAN NOT use a regular nailer or stapler for these plastic composite fasteners - the driving power is too strong.

    Senco composite brad nailer

    We'll go in-depth with these composite fastening tools in a later post, but for now, here's a list with links below:

    Will plastic composite fasteners be the next new thing?

    The verdict: too soon to tell. Several competing products from brands such as RAPTOR® and OMER have been available for a while. However, these new Senco composite fasteners may hold two huge advantages over existing composite fastening products. Number one, the name. Senco is a household name in fastening. Adding Senco branding to these products may make the difference, as they make their mainstream debut. Woodworkers and fabricators who have never heard about composite fasteners will suddenly have a plethora of knowledge at their fingertips, as word spreads throughout the fastening industry. Number two, quality. If Senco composite fasteners can withstand the test of time, we should expect to see them around for the long haul.

    To reiterate key features and benefits for Senco composite fasteners:

    • 100% steel and metal free
    • Flash bonds with wood fibers
    • Eliminate clamping tools and screws
    • Reduce curing time workability
    • No need to remove
    • No need to repair imperfections
    • Sanding belt safe
    • Router bit safe
    • No rust or corrosion
    • Can be painted and stained

    At first glance, Senco composite fasteners look to fill a big gap in the collated fastening marketplace. Would we recommend them, you bet.

  • Why Buy A Cordless Nailer?

    When it comes to cordless power tools, options are far from scarce. As of recent, this is especially true for woodworkers and their nail guns. An industry traditionally powered by pneumatics, cordless nailing has quickly gained a reputation for longer-lasting, more powerful batteries. Without a doubt, cordless nailing has earned its place as a serious contender for the traditional air compressor - air hose configuration.

    So why buy a cordless nail gun?

    For some, a legacy of durability, power and quality is enough to keep long-time woodworkers, carpenters and building framers happy with their air-powered tools. And, for those who tested the first prototype cordless nailers of the late 1980's or 1990's, they wouldn't be wrong having reservations. The difference now, cordless technology has evolved to a comparable level of reliability and power - as compared to the same pneumatic tools responsible for making collated fastening systems what they are today.

    Senco Fusion Internal View

    With battery-powered tools no longer a concern for quality, rest assured that your cordless nailer is completely capable of the challenges ahead. New technology includes a variety of long-lasting, lightweight 18V batteries from Hitachi, Senco and others of the like. Dewalt recently launched their FLEXVOLT cordless system, which offers up to four times a traditional battery charge, with 6.0 Amp Hours of power stored up. Grex even offers a cordless brad nailer, which runs on regular AAA batteries and fuel cell.

    What's the benefit to cordless?

    Versatility. The number one benefit to cordless - besides looking tech savvy - is limitless boundaries in where the tool can be used. As long as the battery is charged, your cordless nailer has no restrictions. No hose. No cord. Pure freedom. Whether you need the extra length an air hose can't provide, or you need to squeeze into a tight corner, cutting the cord eliminates these limitations. With car charger adapters, and quick-charge stations, most major brands in cordless are able to stay up-and-running with minimal delay.

    Dewalt FLEXVOLT Battery

    While cordless technology has advanced tremendously in the last few years, there are certain areas where air-powered tools have an edge on cordless. The main downside to cordless - cost. Look to spend over $100 more on cordless nail guns, when compared against a comparable pneumatic model. If you shop right, you may find a deal, such as Nail Gun Depot's Finish Nailer Face-Off, where you can find added value in buying cordless, like a free spare battery or similar.

    With weight, size and driving power typically no longer an deterrent for cordless, thanks to slimmer batteries with improved lithium-ion cells, there should be little concern. However, expect a cordless nailer to be slightly heavier than a pneumatic nailer of comparable design.

    Cordless Finish Nailer Comparison

    One last area to consider, some brands, such as Paslode and Grex, require compressed gas fuel cells in addition to battery power. While the industry seems to be gradually shifting away from use of fuel cells, some brands still require them. Fuel cells range in lifespan and cost, but typically aren't a deal breaker for someone going cordless.

    Is now the time to cut the cord? Let us know.

  • Do I Need A Finish Nailer Or Brad Nailer?

    Debating which tool in the Finish Nailer Face-Off is right for your project? Let us help.

    For detailed woodwork and trim, where you need more holding strength than a micro pin can provide, a brad nailer is typically the top choice among contractors and weekend warriors alike. Brad nails are formed from a fine 18 gauge wire, which means they are smaller in diameter and typically have less holding strength. The benefit to an 18 gauge brad is its size. Thanks to a smaller head and diameter, brad nails are easier to conceal in small pieces of wood trim. In fact, there's a good chance you won't even need carpenter's putty to conceal a brad nail after installation. A brad nail's size helps prevent surface splitting, which could occur if the fastener is too large for the item it is nailed to. The only real downside to using a brad nailer and nails, these fasteners do not have the holding strength required for larger, heavier projects - such as large crown molding or baseboards.

    Hitachi Cordless Finish Gun

    While the downside to a brad is its holding power, finish nails are made from heavier 15 or 16 gauge wire, which means they can handle a greater payload. For larger trim, such as baseboards or crown molding, a finish nail is the more suitable choice. However, because it leaves a larger hole in the wood surface, a fully driven finish nail almost always requires followup attention - which includes being puttied over to conceal the "shiner" or exposed insertion point of a nail. A finish nail offers increased support and withdrawal resistance when compared to the brad nail.

    Finish nailers will run 15 or 16 gauge finish nails, in both angled and straight varieties depending on the tool. Be sure to confirm whether your tool uses a straight, or angled magazine type. Especially important for 15 gauge finish nailers, determine whether your tool runs "FN" or "DA" type nails, as these fasteners are not interchangeable. Cordless models, such as the Hitachi NT1865DM or the Senco Fusion F-16S (6U0001N), are both excellent examples of 16 gauge straight magazine finish nailers. As mentioned earlier, the one risk to using a finish nailer on small trim; an increased probability for wood splitting and formation of imperfections on the wood surface.

    Senco Fusion F-15

    According to Senco, "The initial tool purchased by most consumers is typically some kind of brad nailer for attaching trim molding. Most who have used a hammer to drive small brads know the frustration when these nails bend - not to mention the possibility for damage if using too much force. The brad nailer makes these small trim jobs a breeze, with high-quality results."

    The fact is, most carpenters use a combination of finish and brad tools. If you're just getting started, it's probably best to compare your application against the tools you are considering. From there, consider the tool that will suit your overall needs best.
