Any ideas then? My regular palm nailer will not fit or even an angled finish 15ga. I screwed the sheathing with a angle impact[none ever placed by the great track builders] but that was slow and hard to do with Phillips bit. Maybe a square drive would be better.The mini ones suck.
I prefer square drive too, too hard to apply pressure under the eaves on phillips . I just did not have any that short with me. I especially like the Senco self drilling ones from the strip drive. The house is 3000 sq. ft. 2 story vaulted, 27' peak and I am looking for a faster way than using an angle drive up on ladders and jacks with planks. This is not a small job. I have an angle impact, and several angle drills, Bosch PS10 , small Milwaukee drive attm. too.People still use philips?
Let us know how you like or dislike it. When I saw that little SENCO at Homers Depot I grabbed it off the shelf to buy it but at the moment had no use for it so I reluctantly put it back! It was only about $40 But FOWTY DOLLAS is FOWTY DOLLAS!I have not tried it yet. I could not make myself spend $6 for 1# of 8D nails at Lowe's. They were grip rite brand.
Seconded, especially since it seems like just about every time I need it, I'm using it with my head between joists. :blink:It is sort of a violent tool and almost too fast for confined spaces, and very loud, wear hearing protection
Not to try and convince you of anything but the speed at which it runs a nail home is dependent on how hard you're pushing it against the nail. Let off the (hand) pressure and it stops connecting w/ the nail head.It is sort of a violent tool and almost too fast for confined spaces, and very loud, wear hearing protection.
The vibration is bad on your wrist as with almost no mass you are absorbing a lot of shock. I think I am back to screws for this application.
