Keep spinning it, Matt. I can go back to posts on both here & FB where you've done nothing but give me crap because we have different views on certain subjects. Perhaps it's time you looked at how you communicate.

I have plenty of friends on both "sides" & we get along very well because while we don't agree on all subjects, we respect each other. It's not about being on the "wrong team", the "wrong side", or anything else. It's about being a respectful adult, mindful that we're all entitled to our own beliefs, views & opinions. Your demonstration of intolerance is exactly what I was referring to earlier. Thanks for providing a clear example of it.

You seem to think political affiliations & views should trump other commonalities we all share here - namely the fact we're tradespeople looking to better ourselves, companies & careers. If you want to hang out with your political peers, why don't you go to a political forum? That way you'd maybe remember the purpose of this one.

Yeah, you definitely don't need to buy the siding gun. The 83a shot a good 1000 plus ring shank siding nails into a fence and honestly didn't jam a single time. Plus, although it is heavy, you can't beat being able to hold 300 rounds I am the magazine at once.

I think it would get a bit awkward trying to frame in tight spots because of the coil, but as a general purpose gun, it can't be beat

I've framed for years with hitachi coil nailers, at first ya just have to think how something will be framed so the bucket doesn't get in the way. But after a little time you will have no problem. Hitachi coil nailers are more than just a "general purpose" nailer. Best of luck with your purchase I am sure you won't be let down.

I guess 'general purpose' was the wrong phrase. This is an awesome gun, I just thought it's size might limit it for some tight space applications.

And hell, I only paid $90 for it from a rental shop that didn't want it anymore, so what's not to love? The thing was a good $400+ when new.

Good score, you don't have to tell me the price I own a few of them.

What do you do for regular maintenance for yours? I've been dropping a few drops of oil into the air hose connection before each day's use, but is there anything else you've found you need to do?

Re: Short Nails In A Framing Nailer


Personally i would put the few drops of oil in he gun as opposed to the hose. Reason is because only a few drip in 25' hose, how much is gonna make it to the gun. Other than the oil i do an end of the month cleaning. Just open it make sure there is no sand in the cylinder. Maybe roll the rings if they look like they are wearing.

Right, that's what I meant.... The port on the gun where the air hose connects. I can see the way I wrote that was a bit ambiguous. Thanks again
