  • Choosing A Staple Gun For Your Project

    Everything you need to know about staple guns. Learn the difference between gauge and crown, what makes one type stapler different from another, and most importantly, which stapler is the best one for you.
    BeA Upholstery Stapler
    What Type Of Staple Gun Do I Need?
    • Construction Stapler: When you think of a staple gun, the first thought that might come to mind is a construction stapler - in other words, not your average office stapler. Most construction staplers look very similar to a nail gun, and they typically aren't far off in operation - that is, until you load your fasteners into the magazine. Construction staplers vary in size, depending on the project you need them for. Finish staplers are great for trim work - while heavy-duty construction staplers can be used for sheathing, cabinet framing, furniture construction and more.
    • Upholstery Stapler: Upholstery staplers and fine wire construction staplers maintain similar characteristics - in fact, there's even a slight category overlap in some 20 gauge models - so it's important that you make sure the tool you purchase is intended for the correct application. Some upholstery staplers are intended specifically for upholstering applications, while others leave some room for versatility. To make upholstering easier, some models of upholstery stapler come with a long nose, for reaching into tight spaces.
    • Flooring Stapler: Flooring staplers, again, look very much like their flooring nailer counterpart. Flooring staplers are designed for the installation of hardwood and engineered wood flooring. Hardwood floor staplers come in two variations - either mallet actuated or trigger actuated. A mallet actuated flooring stapler requires the strike of a rubber mallet to drive the staple into place. Carpet staplers are more of a mixture between hammer staplers and upholstery staplers.
    • Packing Stapler: Carton closing staplers - also known as packaging staplers - are designed specifically for corrugated box closing applications, typically associated with packing and shipping. Carton closing staplers come in several variations, ranging from air-powered (pneumatic), to cordless battery - or even manual - operation. The size of corrugate you are intending to staple will determine the size of staple and stapler you require. For applications in manufacturing or assembly line production, packaging staplers are also available in bench-mounted and clinch stapling variations, designed for repetitive, high-volume use.
    • Hammer Stapler: Hammer staplers, also known as hammer tackers or slap staplers, are manually actuated tools that require the striking of a surface to operate - in the same manner as a hammer. Hammer staplers are generally used in carpet, insulation, housewrap and roofing felt installation.
    • Cap Stapler: Cap staplers are most commonly found in the roofing industry. These specialty staplers operate the same as a regular staple gun, but also drive a plastic cap in tandem with the staple. The cap provides greater holding power and offers added protection for the staple. Cap staplers are used for roofing felt, housewrap, foam board and other select applications.
    Stinger Cap Stapler
    What Crown Stapler Should I Choose?
    • Narrow Crown: Narrow crown staplers are generally used for finish and trim applications, such as molding, trim, cabinets, drawers, fascias and other fine-grained applications. The smaller crown allows the stapler to penetrate a surface without being overly noticeable.
    • Medium Crown: Medium crown staplers are preferred in subflooring, pallet building, vinyl siding, furniture assembly, sheathing and similar applications. A medium crown offers a wider range of clinch, but is not quite as rugged as a wide crown.
    • Wide Crown: Wide crown staplers and staples are intended for heavy-duty use - primarily in construction, for projects in truss building, housewrap, roofing, lathing and more. Look to use a wide crown stapler for many of the same applications as a medium crown, but where it doesn't matter if the staple affects the appearance of your project. Wide crown staples are bulkier, but offer greater holding capability.
    C-Wire Staples
    What's The Difference In Wire (Gauge) Type?
    • Fine Wire: Fine wire staples are the thinnest variation of staple, generally ranging from 20 - 22 gauge in thickness. It's important to note, that the gauge and crown of staple are two different things. The gauge is the thickness of the staple, whereas the crown is the width.
    • Medium Wire: Medium wire staples are generally measured in the 18 - 19 gauge range of thickness. Medium wire will provide more holding power than a fine wire staple, but is not the best option for heavy-duty applications in construction.
    • Heavy Wire: Heavy wire staples are the thickest variation of staple, mostly found in 15 - 16 gauge thickness. Heavy wire will provide the greatest holding power of the three, but will also take up the most area when fastened. Heavy wire staples are good for applications that require stapling to a thick surface.

     

    Other clamp fastening tools serve as extended family to the staple gun, such as hog ring pliers, corrugated fastening tools and flaring staplers; however, these specialized tools are typically intended for industrial use or manufacturing.
    Bostitch Cordless Carton Stapler
    Just as you should with any other power tool, be sure that safety is your top priority when using a staple gun. Always be aware of your surroundings, how you handle the tool, and make sure you are equipped with the proper safety gear.

  • A Guide To Senco Roofing Nailers

    When it comes to the "big" nail guns - framing, roofing, siding - many contractors trust Senco to get the job done. For roofers, Senco has a couple options in their RoofPro series of roofing nailers, the 445XP and the 455XP. Find out what makes Senco RoofPro nailers unique, by exploring the Nail Gun Network.
    Senco RoofPro Roofing Nailer
    What's the difference between Senco's RoofPro 445XP and 455XP roofing nailers, you ask? Well, to be honest, very little. The two tools offer a small list of subtle differences, but are very similar in how the operate overall. The biggest difference between these two pneumatic roofing nailers, air consumption. The 455XP is a slightly larger nail gun, and uses about twice as much air to keep it running. The extra air could provide slightly more driving power than the 445XP, but for many, the difference won't be significant enough to sway preference.
    The Senco RoofPro 445XP coil roofing nailer (8V0001N), drives 3/4" to 1-3/4" roofing nails. With a five-year manufacturer's warranty included out of the box, the 445XP features a thumbwell adjustable depth of drive, aluminum body for durability, and a bi-metal driver blade for reduced wear. A unique two-piece firing valve allows for reduced air consumption without compromise on power or speed, and a power in/power out pneumatic feed system improves speed and delivers consistent drives. An adjustable/removable shingle guide, adjustable nail canister, comfort grip, and steel wear plates are among other options offered on this coil roofing nailer that improve usability. Combine all this with an easily serviceable design - all wearable parts are accessible from the top of tool - and you are set for success. The Senco RoofPro 445XP is perfect for asphalt and fiberglass shingle nailing, for both new roofs and re-roofing - ideal for attaching waterproof tar paper, metal drip edges, insulation board, and with a special optional attachment, vinyl and aluminum siding.
    Senco RoofPro 445XP
    The Senco RoofPro 455XP air-powered coil roofing nailer (3D0101N), drives 3/4" to 1-3/4" roofing nails. Also toting a five-year manufacturer's warranty, the 455XP includes a case, oil and wrench. This roofing nailer features a tool-free adjustable depth of drive, adjustable shingle guide, aluminum body for longer life, and steel wear plates to reduce shingle wear on the tool. The Senco 455XP is specifically recommended for asphalt and fiberglass shingles, waterproof tar paper, new roofs, re-roofing, insulation board and siding - when using with a siding attachment.
    Senco RoofPro 455XP

  • What Type Of Air Hose Do I Need For My Compressor?

    Imagine this scenario. You've purchased a new pneumatic tool, go to hook the tool up to your air compressor, only to find out you don't have the right air hose to connect your tool. You ask, what type of air hose do I need for my compressor? The question is simple - the answer, a bit more complex. Let's explore what type of air hose will suit your application best, when you enter the Nail Gun Network.
    Before getting into the different types of air hoses for an air compressor, you'll need to determine which size fitting your compressor requires. Most hoses for air compressors range in size from 1/4" to 1" in diameter. You should be able to find which hose diameter is suitable by looking at your air compressor. Some air compressors will allow you to use several different sized hoses, simply by switching out the hose fitting (where the hose and air compressor connect). Another point to think about, larger tools will require more air to power them, which means you'll need a compressor with more power.
    Coilhose Air Hose Fitting
    Next, you'll want to think about hose length. For a workshop, where the compressor and air tool(s) are kept close together and do not require extra reach, consider a 25' or 50' air hose. If you're a contractor on the construction site, 50' to 100' hoses typically work out better. Keep in mind, you'll still need the correct fittings to connect your air hose to the tool and compressor.
    The last thing to consider - also the area that offers the most "flexibility" in choosing an air hose - the material it's made from. Most air hoses on Nail Gun Depot are made from either polyurethane or rubber. For applications working with pneumatic tools, we generally recommend either of these materials. PVC and nylon air hoses are also available, but are generally less durable and are not intended for high-pressure usage. Rubber compressor hoses are fairly common, generally for home workshop use. Rubber material handles temperature change well, making it a suitable choice for powering an air tool. For more intense use, contractors generally prefer polyurethane air hoses, which also do well in extreme temperatures (warm and cold), but offer added flexibility with less risk of damage. Polyurethane has been found to stand up better to cuts, kinks and more, as a long-term investment.
    Coilhose Polyurethane Air Hose
    Interested in upgrading? Choose from a selection of air hoses, fittings and other pneumatic accessories from premium manufacturers such as Coilhose, Senco, RolAir and others. Our bet, you won't regret it.

  • All-American Fasteners - A Second Look At Senco

    For many, the term "Made in America" is still a deciding factor when making a product purchase, whether it's a truck, tool - or even a fastener. One of the last large-scale examples of a fastener manufacturer that is "Made in America," Senco Brands, located in Cincinnati, produces more than 80 percent of their fasteners - Nails & Staples - here in Ohio.

    One of the largest fastener production plants in the U.S., the Senco factory spans a whopping 500,000 square feet - and includes fastener manufacturing, tool research and development (not production), a warehouse and office space.

    The trip each American made fastener makes at the Senco plant is as follows. Starting off as a spool of metal wire, each collated fastener journeys through the plant, as it goes from unrecognizable wire to the nails and staples that help build America's infrastructure.

    The wire enters a machine that cuts the thread into partially finished nails, including head, shank and point. From there, the nails go onto a conveyor that sorts and organizes them - so that they are all facing the same direction as required for collation. Each fastener then goes through a finishing process - prior to being prepared for collation. For Wire Coil Nails, the fasteners are then welded to a wire and spun into coils - keep in mind this process varies depending on the type of collation for a fastener (adhesive for staples, paper-tape strip nails, etc). Once the collated nails are complete, they are packaged and stored for delivery to distributors, such as Nail Gun Depot.

    If you're shopping for - or have shopped for an air compressor, you know first-hand there are more than enough options available, offered in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and capabilities.

A true workhorse, Senco's PC1010 compressor has withstood the test of time, living to tell the story. A solid, well-built and affordable compressor for pneumatic nailers and more, consider the benefits of Senco's PC1010.

Pair the PC1010 with applications such as finish and trim work, upholstery, hobbies and crafts. Just keep in mind, the PC1010 is designed to power small pneumatic tools, including finish nailers, upholstery staplers and finish staplers. For larger construction tools, such as framing nailers, roofing nailers, construction staplers and others, you'll need a larger compressor that is designed for the job. Don't worry, Senco has a full spectrum of compressors to choose from.
    Senco PC1010 App
    While you won't be framing a house with the PC1010, most finish woodworkers, remodelers and DIY craftsmen find the PC1010 is perfect for what they need. A compressor that is reliable, low noise (68db to be precise), lightweight and portable, we doubt you'll regret getting your own Senco PC1010.

  • Everything You Need To Know About Roofing Nailers

    Warmer, dryer weather means one thing - roofing season is here. At Nail Gun Depot, we've decided to dedicate the entire month of May to roofers, roofing, and everything in between. Join us as we explore everything you need to know about roofing nailers and other roofing tools - when you enter the Nail Gun Network.
    Senco RoofPro 455XP
    What makes a roofing nailer different from any other type of nail gun? The difference is in the detail. Roofing guns are built to drive nails that are appropriate for most types of asphalt and fiberglass shingles, waterproof tar paper and insulation board. Whether you are installing a new roof, or re-roofing, roofing nailers are built specifically for what they are named.
    A key feature shared between roofing guns, they are designed to drive coil nails - coil roofing nails to be precise. By using coil nails, roofing nailers can go longer between refills - reducing the need to stop and climb off a rooftop to refill the nailer's magazine. A coil magazine design also helps improve the tool's ergonomics, making it less awkward to maintain hold of while crawling around on a roof.
    MAX CN445R2 Features
    Don't be fooled, quality means everything for a roofing nailer. Most roofing contractors use their tools on a daily basis during peak roofing season, so it's essential that the tool you purchase is dependable and provides several years of worry-free service. When it comes to roofing nailers, trust the guys who know the business best. Senco offers two excellent roofing tools, the 445XP and the 455XP - paired with a five-year manufacturer's warranty for added peace of mind. The Hitachi NV45AB2 is another popular model that has withstood the test of time. Last, but certainly not least, the MAX CN445R2 (replaced by MAX CN445R3) offers roofing contractors the affordability of a competitive price point, paired with the durability of a construction-grade tool. Any of the roofing nailers we've listed above should provide several years of excellent service.
    When it comes to installing roof felt, cap coil nailers, also known as plastic cap nailers, are pivotal to any roofing operation. Cap nailers drive a coil nail in tandem with plastic cap, providing additional holding strength and protection versus a standard nail. Stinger also offers a series of cap staplers that are designed to do the same - only with staples instead of nails.
    Stinger CN100 Cap Nailer
    Next to roofing nailers, hammer tackers (hammer staplers) are a necessity for any installation where roofing paper will need to be laid before shingles are nailed into place. These slap staplers work the same way as a standard hammer, only instead of pounding a nail into place, the impact of a hammer tacker triggers the firing of a staple into the surface with which it makes contact.

  • What Does A Nail Gun Warranty Cover?

    Picture this, the nailer you bought six months ago suddenly stops running. The power supply is fine, but the tool's dead. Time to visit an authorized repair center - but who's on the hook for the repair bill? You might be surprised at the answer. Learn more about your nailer's warranty, what constitutes a wearable part, and everything else you need to know before picking up the tab for your tool's repair bill - here on the Nail Gun Network.
    The best advice we can give you regarding warranty coverage for your tool - or any item for that matter - read the fine print carefully. Every manufacturer has their own legal staff that writes and reviews what is covered in a product warranty, down to the smallest screw. With that said, use the following as a general overview of what would typically be included within the warranty coverage for a brand-new nail gun. Always consult the manufacturer's warranty policy before filing your claim.
    Freeman Tools Warranty
    Believe it or not, the clause that trips up our customers most frequently - when they find out their warranty does not include wearable parts. This leads to the next question, what's considered a wearable part? There's a general consensus among manufacturers that wearable parts include the following components: o-rings, bumpers and driver blades. Some manufacturers might categorize additional components as wearable, but you can almost always guarantee the three parts above WILL NOT be included in your warranty coverage.
    NOTE: Some warranties only cover parts, excluding labor expense. This is particularly true in warranties that extend beyond the standard one-year guarantee. Generally, each manufacturer will specify if this is the case.
    Bostitch Warranty
    Don't kick the dirt just yet! All three of the components mentioned earlier are relatively inexpensive to repair, and are considered regular maintenance items on your nailer. Just like you would change the oil filter in your car or replace the brakes, these items require periodic attention to keep your nail gun performing at its best.
    Furthermore, what about the components that ARE covered by the warranty? Most brands of nail gun, staple gun or screw gun offer a standard one-year manufacturer's warranty. Some brands go above and beyond, offering additional protection for their product owners. If you are looking for a lifetime guarantee, Quik Drive stands behind their screw gun attachments with their limited-lifetime warranty. While it only covers the attachment (motors generally come with one year of coverage), it demonstrates the quality and durability representative of these products. Bostitch and Freeman Tools offer seven-year warranties on many of their nailers and staplers, and Senco offers a five-year warranty on its XP line of pneumatic tools.
    Senco Tools
    One final point to remember, a warranty's coverage only protects against normal use. It's ultimately up to the manufacturer to determine whether or not the owner has taken the necessary measures to ensure their tool was properly cared for prior to failure. In almost all instances, this rules out accidental damage or undue abuse. For example, if the nailer was left outside permanently and exposed to harsh conditions as a result, it could void your warranty coverage. Likewise, if a roofing nailer is dropped from a two-story roof, coverage would most likely be voided as well. Making alterations to a tool is another way to void its warranty.
    Here's our best advice. Maintain your tools per the manufacturer's specifications, see that they are not misused or abused, and have them serviced at the first sign of trouble. Some manufacturers offer the ability to register your tool online, which helps to confirm the range of time your warranty is valid. Save your sales receipts and keep your tool's service records on-hand if applicable. If you stick to these rules, your nailer, stapler or screw gun should provide many years of reliable service.

  • What's A Palm Nailer Used For?

    You've probably heard of them - may have even seen one - but still don't know what a mini-palm nailer is used for. Mini-palm nailers, also known as palm nailers, are not your traditional nail gun. A member in the nailer family, palm nailers serve a different purpose than the collated nailers that most people think of when searching for a nail gun.

    You ask, "what's a palm nailer?" To put it simply, mini-palm nailers are small pneumatic tools that drive bulk nails individually. Most palm nailers are designed to drive large framing nails, joist hanger nails or other bulk nails that are similar in size. The biggest difference between a pneumatic framing nailer and a palm nailer - collation. Traditional air-powered framing nailers drive collated gun nails, commonly known as strip nails and coil nails. These nails are held together in collation, meaning they are adhered together in a strip or coil by various bonding agents, which include metal wire, glue, paper tape or plastic. On the other hand, palm nailers drive individual, non-collated variations of these nails. And don't forget, both types of pneumatic nailer still require an air compressor to operate.

    This probably leaves you wondering, "why would I use a palm nailer instead of a collated nail gun?" Collated nailers are ideal for projects that require repetitive nailing in quick strokes, but because of their size, they are often too bulky to fit in tight, hard to reach spaces. That's where a mini-palm nailer can become the most useful tool in your systainer box. Palm nailers are designed to pick up where a collated nailer leaves off. Uses for palm nailers include framing, decking, fencing, metal connector straps, pole barn construction and much more - just think of them as a pneumatic nailer specifically designed to fit into hard to access spaces. A great example of an inexpensive, well-built palm nailer, check out the Senco PC1195.
