Summary

  • Common nail gun mistakes include not understanding which size and type of nailer to use, such as 15 gauge for trim work, 18 gauge for general purpose, and 23 gauge for delicate items.
  • Choosing the right nail size depends on the material thickness and orientation, with recommendations like using 3/4 inch nails for 3/4 inch material when joining two pieces face-to-face.
  • Overdriving or underdriving nails can occur due to incorrect compressor settings, with recommendations to adjust the PSI based on the nail gun's requirements.
  • Mistakes can also stem from using the wrong setup, such as pneumatic versus cordless nailers, where considerations like tool variety and intended usage should be taken into account.
  • Filling nail holes improperly can ruin projects, with suggestions to sand excess wood putty or glue around the hole before applying stain for a cleaner finish.
  • Blowing nails out of the side of a board can be avoided by keeping the nailer perpendicular to the board and understanding how nail width affects the direction of the nail.
