Why I Need A Hook For The Paslode Framer.


Last Friday I was working on ceiling lath, to flatten the existing, and line the blue board up with another room.

I set the gun a little precariously inside the joist bay of this grid.

I "remember" brushing against the gun hose...

...fortunately, I didn't see stars, and NO;

my teeth didn't "click" together.

It still hurt like he!!.

Unfortunately, I couldn't place a PO for my genetic material.

male pattern baldness hit me a little later in life.

Re: Why I Need A Hook For The Paslode Framer.


I was climbing up on a second story roof to put siding on a chimney once. I put the siding gun in the gutter while I climbed around to the other side of the chimney.

I called out "watch out for the hose", but a few seconds later my boss walks around the corner, hits the hose so that it drags the gun out of the gutter.

It falls and hits him in the head and bounces on the ground. He looks around a little dazed and confused, and notices the rubber nose piece on the gun had popped off, so he tries to put it back on. As he does this, he shoots a ring shank siding nail right through the tip of his finger! He had his finger on the trigger while he tried to put the tip on!

Ouch! Glad its not worse.

Thats one of those hits that takes a micro second to hurt. Its just enough time to look around for people before you start rubbing your head and cussing the nail gun out
