Collated nails

Recommended Posts

Been a machinist, engineer for 40 years, just started framing at home. New barn.  never done it. All ok,  I bought a dewalt 692 electric framing gun, works well, but shuts off at 7 nails left in the strip. It says in the manual it does this.  Dumb question time, what the heck do you do with all the short 7 nail strips?  Stack em back in the magazine? Masking tape em together?  Or toss em. Seems like a waste.  Thanks.

You had a problem, you asked for help and got answered. No one's a idiot here, that's what a big part of this forum is for

Not an idiot.

If it didn’t have the anti dry fire feature, you might continue nailing despite having never reloaded the gun.

If you built the whole shop with no nails, then,....

Perfect, thanks again. 

 

Another question please. Manual shows instruction for bump actuation, and place actuation. Used bump on  shear panels, worked great. Place actuation reads " a nail will fire each time the trigger is depressed as long as the contact tip remains depressed". 

 

Is that to use the no mar tip and slide it along workpiece and fire away?

It’s for precise placement.

Put it where you want it, then pull the trigger. You can generally put a nail into a hole where you pulled a nail out. (I do lots of repairs)

Whatever you do, don’t try to use it to install joist hangers.

Dewalt does make a joist hangers cordless I have it but it's the same size as the 692..not good for hangers or 12" OC...but the cordless compressor with a 50' hose and and a bostich "strap shot" hanger work perfectly
