Good question, I'm thinking of getting said nailer and would like to
I suspect it takes standard "T" nails, as per the Screwfix catalogue.
Maybe also "maxi-brads", as these all _seem_ compatible with each other.
Does anyone know is there are generic standards for air nailer nails?
Generally there are - 22ga, 18, 16, 15. In various lengths.
There are others used in framing and roofing nailers.
This should apply to anything based on U.S. designs.
One good source of information is www.senco.com - they also make among
the best nailers, along with Porter Cable.
For a UK supplier, I have used Top Gun in Blackpool quite a bit.
They are very good at sourcing even quite obscure nails.
For example, I recently needed a quantity of stainless steel full
round head nails in 50mm for my framing nailer. It wasn't a stock
item, but they sourced them in a couple of days.

Well, I just bought one of those AWMN's.
What a beast.
I've just banged a load of 50mm masonry nails into wood (and my garage
floor in a couple of trys).
By default it drives them about 2mm below the surface, and the firing
pin is a fairly large rectangular affair (~6.5 x 2.5mm), which makes
quite a size recess in the wood.
However by adjusting the nose cover plate down a tad, I got it driving
the nails flush or just below the surface.
There's no splintering or splitting.
So I'll be using on the shed build a few weeks time.
Then I might sell it on.
As to other nails, I found a huge list at
The 13ga equates (I think) to 2.2mm gauge listed on page 3 of that list.
All by "Ace & K", who I'd never heard of but seem to be into air nailers
If anyone knows of their web site (if they have one), where is it cos I
can't find it.
