  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Father's Day Project: Build A Frame For Your Wall-Mount TV

    Looking for a project to do with dad this Father's Day? You've seen the gift guide, know the date (June 21st - just in case it slipped your mind), but why not take it a step further and spruce up pop's "man cave" with an easy woodworking project that's perfect for dad, son, and even grandpa to do together? That's right, if you couldn't guess from the title of this post, we're talking about crafting a frame for dad's wall-mounted flatscreen TV. Learn what it takes to make this project count, the tools you'll need, and more - right here on the Nail Gun Network.
    Let's start with the basics. You'll need an 18 gauge brad nailer and brad nails, a 23 gauge pin nailer and micro pins, some wood glue, a tape measure and a miter saw - oh, and of course, the wood for your frame and molding. Once the frame is complete, you'll probably also want to stain or paint it, and add felt strips to the inside of the box to prevent scratching the TV once it's inside. Mounting elastic bands (or something similar) to the back of the frame will help to keep the box level and prevent any slipping.
    Grex Pin Nailer
    To start the project, you'll need to measure the dimensions of the television itself. Don't forget to measure depth too, to determine how thick the frame needs to be. Dimensions should be about 1/8" larger than the television itself. Once you've cut the box, you'll use wood glue and brad nails to secure the frame.
    At this point, you have two options, you can simply stain or paint the frame, add the felt lining and elastic bands on the back to prevent slippage, and insert around the TV - or you can cut decorative trim to dress up the box frame and give it additional visual appeal.
    TV
    If you opt for decorative molding, leaving the 1/8" overlap where molding meets the frame, add twice that amount to the dimensions of molding that you cut. Make your miter cuts to the flat side of your molding - this will be integral to achieving a picture frame look for the final appearance. Use a pin nailer and micro pin nails to fasten your molding to the frame. You can also use some additional wood glue to help seal the molding where it meets at the corners of your frame.
    All that's left is to mount the television and enjoy.
    PROJECT NOTE: Remember that the TV needs to still be mounted to it's manufacturer specified mount. The decorative frame is NOT a substitute mount for the television.
    Freeman P7TRKTM
    If you're looking for a great start to this project, the Freeman Tools P7TRKTM 3-tool combo kit includes most of the items required to handle this project. With a brad nailer, pin nailer and tape measure included, give dad a new set of tools to go with his brand new flatscreen TV frame.
    ~ The Nail Gun Depot Team
    To leave the 1/8-in. reveal where the molding overlaps the frame, so weÔÇÖre adding twice that amountÔÇöor 1/4 inchÔÇöto the dimensions we cut. These miter cuts are made on the flat side of the molding so the pieces create the picture-frame look when they all go together. The frame can be fastened to the box with finish nails. - See more at: http://extremehowto.com/flat-tv-screen-frame/?page=all#sthash.LGvTXQeY.dpuf

  • NGD's Best Products Of 2014

    Black Friday around the corner means one thing - the end of 2014 is in sight. With the prospect of an even better 2015, we don't want to forget some of the fastening tools that continue to prove themselves among the best, again and again.
    Fan Favorites for 2014:
    Hitachi NR83A3 (replaced by the NR83A5) An excellent option for framing applications, the Hitachi NR83A3 round head, plastic strip framing nailer is a leader in its class. A well-built pneumatic tool, this Hitachi nailer is one of the most-visited products on the Nail Gun Depot site. It's no surprise this nailer is so popular - after all, it features a five-year warranty, light-weight body, and durable design.
    Hitachi NR83A3
    Senco PC1010 - The Senco PC1010 continues to serve the tool and fastener industry as one of its most popular compressors. This compact, hand-carry air compressor is ideal for anyone from amateur woodworkers to expert craftsmen. Don't plan on taking the PC1010 to framing job (you'll need a larger compressor for that), but for anyone powering a pneumatic finish and trim tool, this is the compressor for you. Featuring an oil-free pump, this Senco compressor is lightweight (only 20 pounds), durable and compact - oh and did we mention it's quiet too?
    Senco PC1010
    Senco Fusion F-15 - Some prefer to eliminate the air compressor all-together. Cutting the cords and moving beyond the limitation of an electrical outlet is quite appealing to many woodworkers and DIYer's - especially those on-the-go. For them, the Senco Fusion F-15 cordless finish nailer remains a top-choice for finish and trim applications. Featuring an 18-V Lithium Ion battery that can drive up to 600 shots per charge - with a recharge time of approximately 45 minutes - the Senco Fusion is a great tool for hard to reach finish and trim work.

Ideal for finish and trim applications, don't plan on needing to replace this tool any time soon. This pneumatic nailer pairs nicely with the PC1010 compressor.
    Paslode T250A-F
    Bostitch MFN201 - A tool that does not require a battery or compressor, the Bostitch MFN201 manual hardwood flooring nailer relies on human muscle - rather than alternative sources for power. Arguably the most popular flooring tool we carry, there must be some method to the madness. With a seven-year Bostitch warranty, the MFN201 flooring kit includes a graphite mallet, two flooring shoes (for 1/2" and 5/8" flooring), a heavy-duty carrying case, and hex wrenches. The MFN201 has proven itself a solid flooring nailer for solid hardwood floors.

  • How To Select The Right Finish Nailer For Your Project

    Shopping for a new finish nailer can be a daunting task if you haven't done your homework first. While many models look and feel very similar, there are certain features that set one finish nailer apart from the other. Depending on your needs, this can play a major role in making an informed decision - leading to a purchase. Let's take a look at the differences between certain types of finishing nail guns.
    Bostitch Smart Point
    Let's start with 15 gauge finish nailers. These tools are ideal for projects such as cabinet and furniture building, picture frame assembly, trim and molding installation, and upholstery trim applications. Look for an angled nail magazine on most 15 gauge finish nailers. While there aren't many cordless 15 gauge models available, the 15-gauge Senco F-15 Fusion fills the void - quite well - eliminating the need for an air compressor with its 18V Lithium Ion Battery. Furthermore, the Senco Fusion (also available in 16-gauge straight and 18 gauge variations) recently took top honors in a comparison test conducted by Popular Mechanics Magazine.
    Senco Fusion
    Similarly, 16-gauge finish nailers are ideal for many of the same applications as their 15 gauge counterpart. This includes projects such as installing door and window trim, baseboards, paneling, crown modeling, door jambs and more. The biggest difference between the two tools, 16 gauge finish nailers are generally smaller and lighter. Because 16-gauge nails have a slightly smaller diameter, many believe that the 15-gauge nail provides more holding power - depending on the type project you are looking to complete. You can find a wide variety of both angled and straight magazine 16 gauge finish nailers. Another cordless tool that ranks highly with contractors, the Paslode IM250A-Li drives 16-gauge angled finish nails and comes with a five-year warranty from Paslode.

    Arguably, the most popular among finish nailer buyers who are purchasing a tool for DIY or occasional-use, 18 gauge brad nailers are built to handle trim, paneling, furniture repair and so much more. Brad nailers act as the catch-all tool for finish and trim applications. Keep in mind, brad nailers that can handle a 2" or larger fastener lend the most versatility. One of our favorites, Bostitch recently launched its Smart Point line of finsh and brad nailers. These tools are pneumatic, which means you'll need an air compressor, but offer some of the most precise nail placement available. The advantage to Smart Point, a narrow nose allows the user to access hard to reach areas with ease - while also reducing surface damage caused during firing. Similar to the Fusion family, Bostitch offers Smart Point nailers in 15 gauge (BTFP72155 DA and BTFP72156 FN), 16 gauge, and 18 gauge variations.
    Bostitch Smart Point Nose
    Last in the finish fastening family, pin nailers offer the least holding power, but are perfect for projects that require a small nail, such as those used in birdhouse building, small trim, picture frame work, and light wood assembly. Commonly available in either a 21 gauge or more popular 23 gauge variation, pin nailers are ideal for any application that requires a narrow fastener. Pin nails are also available in both headless and headed variations, just be sure that the tool you are using is compatible with the fastener you are intending to use. When it comes to pin nailers, Grex maintains a commanding share of the market - offering six different models of 23 gauge pin nailer. Affordable and reliable, Grex pin nailers are a safe choice for any first-time buyer.

    Now that you know the difference between finish, brad and pin nailers - which one best suits you?
