    If you're shopping high-end for the holidays, our premium pick for gift giving this year is none-other than Hitachi's new lineup of lithium-ion cordless finish nailers. Available in extremely limited quantities before January 1st, this exclusive new series includes the NT1850DE 18-Gauge 2” Cordless Brad Nailer, the NT1865DM 16-Gauge 2-1/2” Cordless Straight Finish Nailer, and the NT1865DMA 15-Gauge 2-1/2” Cordless Angled Finish Nailer. Lose the air hose, compressor and gas fuel cartridges; this series of Hitachi cordless finish nailers is powered exclusively by Hitachi’s all-new, upgraded 3.0Ah compact lithium-ion battery, which delivers comparable power at roughly half the weight. Not to mention, the battery is universal to all other Hitachi 18V Li-Ion slide type battery-powered tools. Pair that with Hitachi's Brushless motor technology, which adds longer run time, reduces maintenance, and improves durability - and we see each of these tools making for a happy New Year. The driving system used in these finish nailers is similar to Hitachi’s pneumatic line, featuring a unique air spring drive system that uses compressed air to drive each nail. This results in zero ramp up time, increased shooting speed, recoil that feels like a pneumatic nailer, quicker response time between fastener shots, better flush driving- even at an angle, and easy maintenance. And if you aren't sold yet, Hitachi is even supporting these tools with a limited-lifetime warranty for complete peace of mind.

  • Tips For Comparing Brad Nailers & Pin Nailers

    The Nail Gun Network proudly presents the following guest post, adapted from Senco's "Pro Tips" Blog.

    Comparing Brad Nailers and Pinners: 18, 21 and 23 Gauge

    Senco 21 Gauge Pin Nailer

    There’s a lot to consider when choosing the right nailer for your job. The differences between an 18, 21 or 23-gauge system may seem slight, but can make or break your project.

    Finish and Trim Applications

    For finish and trim applications, the standard tool has been the 18-gauge pneumatic nailer. Its nails are more narrow than 15 or 16-gauge variations, and as a result, they are less likely to split narrow trim and molding.

    Delicate Moldings and Pre-Finished Crown

    When it comes to delicate moldings or pre-finished trim, pros will often switch to a 23-gauge pin nailer. In these applications, an 18-gauge has the tendency to split the wood, especially hardwoods, or leave unsightly marks. On the other hand, headless or slight-head 23-gauge pins are extremely thin and nearly invisible, eliminating the concern for splitting and damage.

    It is important to note, in some cases, 23-gauge pins may not have the holding strength required for a solid connection, and an adhesive may be necessary to assist with permanent placement.

    Things to Consider

     

    While an examination of height, weight, length and magazine size of the respective nailers will reveal more similarities than differences, there are other factors to consider when choosing the most appropriate tool.

    Senco Pin Nailer

    The 18-Gauge

    The 18-gauge brad nailer offers the most versatility across multiple applications, and is a cost-competitive option. Plus, the widespread availability of 18-gauge brads is a plus. But, there are a few drawbacks to consider. Since it requires the nose piece to be depressed for actuation, an 18-gauge brad nailer can leave a dent in softer wood. The thicker head of an 18-gauge nail can also mean more touch-up work, and because it’s the largest of the three, working with an 18-gauge nailer in tight corners can be a challenge.

    The 21-Gauge

    When compared to the 18-gauge, a 21-gauge pinner is more expensive, provides less columnar strength, and fastener lengths are much more limited. However, a 21-gauge pinner is over a third smaller. It leaves a much smaller indent than an 18-gauge brad, improving aesthetics. Plus, it’s more compact and lightweight, is easier to maneuver in tight spaces, and its ultra-thin nose improves line of sight. For example – if your project involves MDF, and an 18-gauge is just too much firing power, consider the 21 gauge pinner.

    Compared to a 23-gauge pin, a 21-gauge fastener provides better shear strength and more holding power. But, it’s about 10% bigger.

    Senco Finish Woodwork

    The 23-Gauge

    A 23-gauge micro-pinner, such as the Senco 23LXP, eliminates almost any need for touch up finishing. But, 23-gauge headless pins are not structural, and due to the reduced holding power, adhesive may be necessary to create a permanent bond. Don't let this scare you, 23-gauge pin nailers are imperative to anyone dealing with trim woodwork.

  • Nailing Versus Stapling For Roof Shingles

    If you work in or around the U.S. roofing industry, an age-old question you are bound to hear - which is better, nailing or stapling roofing shingles? Get expert advice on both options, as well as tips to calculate materials usage and more!

    Let's start with stapling.

    In the past, when it came to the debate of roofing nails versus staples, the industry was split down the middle. After all, it's no surprise roofers loved staples for attaching shingles to roofing. Staples cost less than nails, offer exceptional holding strength, and cover a greater area of space with a more versatile and compact collation. Paired with the fact staplers are typically easier to handle than a coil nailer - and a stapler is less complex to repair - it's easy to see why stapling would be the preferred method for fastening shingles.

    Senco RoofPro 455XP Roofing Nailer

    PRO TIP: When estimating nail or staple usage for your roofing project, you should budget 400 nails or staples per square. Breaking it down further, you'll typically use four fasteners per 3-tab shingle. However, always consult your local building authority for exact code requirements.

    Bostitch Roofing Nailer

    Flash forward to present day, where coil roofing nails dominate the market. But what changed?

    Within the last two decades, the roofing industry has shifted its preference toward the roofing nail. What's ironic, it can actually be argued the staple has better holding power compared to the nail. Nonetheless, here's why coil roofing nails have gained such popularity over staples.

    Hitachi NV45AB2 Coil Roofing Nailer

    While many factors have led modern roofers to use nails more often than staples, the strongest argument doesn't actually involve the quality of either fastener, but rather depends on the patience and precision of the end user. The problem with attaching a shingle to roof using staples, if the positioning of the staple is not perpendicular to the shingle itself, holding strength is greatly compromised. Staples are also much easier to over-drive, or under-drive, both scenarios that can further contribute to holding issues. With roofing nails this issue doesn't exist, because the nail has a round head - just make sure the nail gets driven straight into the shingle.

    Other benefits to using coil roofing nails include higher capacity magazine load, adjustable depth of drive on most roofing nailers, and most roofing nails maintain a universal design for ease of compatibility.

    Stinger Cap Coil Roofing Nailer

    In some areas of the U.S. today, staples have even been banned from shingle to roof installation, due to the likelihood of improper installation. Depending on region, other regulations may dictate type of galvanization or coating, or even require stainless steel in coastal areas. As always, please confirm code requirements with your local building authority prior to starting a project.
