Types of Nail Guns
What To Look For When Buying
It’s important to identify whether you will want a cordless or pneumatic. Chances are if you are a DIYer / hobbyist you will want a cordless fuel or battery powered. A penumatic has very high pressure due to being air powered and is typically best for industrial uses.
Angle or straight
What do you anticipate you will mainly be using the nail gun for? Will you be using it to build framing, attach shingles, or wood work? Decide what posture you are most comfortable with as well.
You should aim to purchase a gun that works with multiple nail types and sizes. This will allow you to adapt the gun to your work rather than being limited by its acceptance.
A protective guard is pretty important, especially with a pneumatic nailer. This will protect you from debris or a loose nail that is kicked back due to whatever reason. Limit your injuries and invest in these.
How often do you want to refill with nails? The magazine size determines how many nails it can hold, 50+ is pretty standard.
Affordability, whats your budget? What do you want to get out of the gun? These are things to decide on when purchasing.
Warranty & Manufacturer
Does the gun come with a warranty or not? If it doesn’t, how will you get it replaced or will you just buy a new one? Things to consider…
