2 stars out of 5.
We have one of the Senco strip deck screw thingies.I'm not up on part numbers like the rest of you guys are.I'm a dedicated tool junkie but could not name a part # on any of the tools I own.
Anyhow,it has a drywall attachment for it and is adjustable for length(has an attachment) .Works pretty damn good for lids and decks.

No nails allowed on my jobs . At'least not for the hangers !

I will use a few nails in certain areas where I see fit after the hangers are done . I don't care much for blisterd egg holes ! And that's all nailing drywall will do . Blister It! I will go around at the end off the job on sand day and look over the bottom sheets To throw a few nails in the bottom plates where it looks a little wavy around protectors ..etc..

Any Hanging crew that still nails the perimeter Won't hang for me.

Maybe nobody knows how to use a hammer . hatchet any more. The old stuff was all nails, and didn't have blisters all over. The nails looked like brads with bigger heads, but still smaller heads than what you buy for drywall nails now.

The key words there were "the old stuff". LW board is a different animal altogether.

Have you tried driving a nail in a piece of light weight board?

I have to disagree with you Mr. Davis . When I first started They were still double nailing the fields .. I've been back in those homes over the years ..They look like chit! All blisterd up and popped!!

I do agree that most all of the younger hangers couldn't drive a nail If they had to.. I consider that a BLESSING!! Let them stick to what they know !!! The screw gun!!

Every Time I walk down the hammer aisle in a supply and see an eastwing drywall hatchet . I Throw up in my mouth a little! Why do they still make those things?? I've always used the plumb square head 8oz . Any [imo] round head drywall hatchet will leave a pre-fill mess!!!


PLUS!! Most any Home owner or Building Contractor Don't want to hear the N word ! I know as well as you and most here that a screw will pop just as well as a nail will , but According to the general public nailing drywall is out dated! G/CS and H/Os consider D/Cs that use nails as hacks .

Seems like the diameter of a roofing nail would be problematic on the edges, especially the non-tapered edge. Can you say blowout?

LW is it's own problem

I can get you some pics of a 55 year old hang job double nailed that is as good as the day it was done (except for the holes I'm patching). I'm not saying it was a good hang job (it wasn't), but it didn't blister and pop. Whoever did it knew more about nailing than I do.

Nailing is outdated. I'll use a few once in a while, but I'll go through 100 lbs of screws before I use 1lb of nails.

Besides the fact that a screw holds better, I see the downside to a nail gun being that people will miss and not know it. Even if it just catches the side. It won't be good over the long hall.

The gun:

I don't much see the point of nailing. The collated drywall screw guns are very quick, and if nailing is really helping you out, then maybe you should look into a better crew, or a lift, or some other aspect of how you're hanging.

It could be that the O.P. (he wouldn't be alone) is screwing drywall with a plain driver with a #2 phillips tip, which is slow going.

I wouldn't do it. But for those who do I might suggest doing it with tite-bond glue for at least the ceilings. Though I do use a paslode roofing stapler to hang corner bead.

I think we're gonna start having hangers use timberlok screws instead of drywall screws, be good for shear
