Pneumatic Siding Nailer

2389 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  randloph
Has anyone used a pneumatic siding coil nailer on western red cedar lap siding? It would be great if it worked but WRC is so fragile, its hard not to overdrive and split an occasional board even driving by hand. Is a pneumatic nailer on fragile siding more trouble than its worth?

I've never used a pneumatic nailer myself on siding, but my sub does. I'ts not a coil nailer, but I'll check and see what kind he uses.
I have used a Bostich coil nailer many times on western red cedar. The tip is adjustable and does not over nail or split the wood. Just make sure you nail above the lower board so the wood does not split later.
