Tips for Choosing a Framing Nail Gun

Buying a framing nail gun? Use this guide to framing nailers before you make your purchase and get the best framing nailer for your money.

Whether you're working on a woodworking project or you're fastening shingles to your roof, nothing beats the power of a nail gun. But not all nailers are the same. In fact, there is such a wide variety of nailing equipment that for the uninitiated, it's easily enough to make their head spin. No matter what type of project you're planning on working with, use the right nail gun for the job by using this guide to nailers and get the most out of your next home improvement project.

Stick and Coil Nailers

There are two basic types of nailers-stick and coil. Stick nailers use a "stick" or row of nails that are stacked in a series and held together with a strip of glue. Stick nailers have two separate types of stick setups-angled and straight. Angled nailers are more common because they can employ a much tougher nail and a thicker gauge. Coil nailers use a "coil" of nails that are held together with two wires and come in a wrapped roll. These typically come in a straight coil but can also be offset at an angle as well. When buying nails for either one of these style of guns, you need to be sure that you have the correct angle and nail gauge for your make and model of nail gun.

Pneumatic Vs. Cordless

Nailers that use compressed air to drive the nailing piston are called pneumatic nailers. Cordless nailers use a gas cartridge or a battery pack to drive the nailing piston and don't require a bulky air compressor to make them work. Compressed air nailers are often more bulky than a cordless but are far less expensive to purchase and are much cheaper to repair when they break down.

Framing Nailers

One of the most popular nail gun styles, the framing nailer is a versatile tool that's perfect for joining large pieces of wood together. While most framing nailers are used for driving larger 10d or 12d framing nails into heavy framing materials like 2x4's, they are also great for driving smaller nails like 6d or 8d into plywood.

Considerations: When you're looking for a quality framing nail gun for your project, you may want to consider purchasing a nailer that employs a dual contact trigger. Dual contact triggers allow the user to hold down the firing trigger and "bump" the safety tip to shoot a series of nails without having to release and reengage the trigger each time you want to fire a nail. This is especially useful for nailing plywood or headers that require multiple nails in small sections.
