Nail Gun Question...
« on: September 28, 2019, 10:37:22 am »
Hello,


  I'm building a shed - 4.8m by 2.4m, weatherboard clad with 140x16 boards.


  There's a hell of a lot of nailing to do to fix all the weatherboarding, so I'm considering buying a nailgun that'll run off my compressor, as they seem lighter and cheaper.


  Ideally, I want one which will drive 16-gauge nails with a head on them to hold the weatherboarding to the frames, but I can only find guns that fire out brad nails, which don't have a head.


  Does a nailgun that fires nails with heads on them actually exist or am I barking up the wrong garden path, so to speak?


  Thanks for your help


  :)

Yes i have a Bostitch  nailer, used it to build goat stables they are great
