About Our Nail Guns & Nails
What type of Nail Gun do I need?
A typical brad nailer, for example, shoots nails that are 3/8 inch to 1 1/4 inches in length, while a larger framing nailer typically shoots nails from 2 to 3 1/2 inches in length. For woodworking projects, a brad nailer is a good choice. If you're constructing a fence, a framing nailer is a good option.
What is the difference between first and second-fix nail guns?
The key difference between first-fix and second-fix nail guns is that first-fix nail guns are more powerful machines that use larger nails for heavy-duty framing applications. Whilst second fix nail guns are slightly more delicate and refined pieces of equipment that use smaller nails for a range of ‘finishing’ applications.
A nail gun is operated using a trigger that activates the driving mechanism for the firing pin. The firing pin is pushed or released at high speed, driving the nail into the material. A nailer can be used to drive fixings into a variety of materials taking almost all the work out of nailing, saving both time and effort on a job. Available in a range of power sources including cordless that allows greater flexibility than air or electric. Look for features such as angled or straight magazines giving greater accessibility and manoeuvrability.
