Oiled vs non-oil Brad Nailer


If the main use for a brad nailer is to apply trim to doors and cabinetry how important is it to use a nailer that does not require oil? Do they really spit out enough to make a difference when finishing? thanks, JG

If you over oil the gun which is usually less harmful than under oiling, the gun will blow the excess out the exhaust. The biggest danger of transferring oil to your wood work will probably be from oil on your hands that comes from handling the bottle of oil. Because I usually attract oil, LOL I prefer to not have oil around at all and use the oilless models.

Maybe. How's that for the classic wreck answer? If you over-oil they will definitely spit some, if it is a cheap one it might anyway. I have a P-C that is pretty clean - I've never noticed any oil spotting from it - but if I was doing it again I'd spend the extra for an oil-less model. Not so much because of worries about oil spots on my projects as to make it possible to keep the oil bottle out of the wood shop and in the mechanics tools where it belongs.
