full head / clipped head framing nailer


Recommended Posts

MM are you buying another tool.


"IF" my friend wouldnt be so kind, then yes but i could borrow his PC air compressor and framing gun.

+ he gave me a box full of nails.

just wanted to know to difference.


also heard about those arbox nails or so, anchor nails - which you can barely pull out.

i thing holmes mentioned those in one of his shows. are those available for framing guns?

If your buying a gun stick with paper tape or wire collated full head nails. Wire being the best imo. The plastic collated are nice but the spit bits of plastic everywhere..

For a repair like yours I would most likely frame it with screws. Get some nice grk r4 9 × 3 1/8" and go to town..

yeah i bought a pack of screws when i went to the hardware store for lumber and the new door.

on the same day i talk to my friend and he said - dude dont use screws, ill get u my gun. its faster and easier! 

so ya, thats how i ended up with his gun in my garage.

just wanted to know the difference between those 2 nails/nailer.
