Good morning Mr. Phelps.
FBNCC's not owned a nailer prior to this, and thus far has only used
finish nails by hammer, bandaid and set method. He would like to use it
for home trim, cabinetry, furniture casework, and case trim.
Fly-by is considering going the full 15 gauge finish nailer route since
he has indicated some concern whether the 16 gauge and especially the 18
gauge wire size is up to the task of window, door, wainscotting and
other trimming situations.
He has shown some interest in using it for the aforementioned cabinetry
and casework, but is then concerned the 15 gauge is too large for that
Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to provide your
assistance with respect to FBNCC choosing a new nailer/bradder. Is the
15 too large for cabinet carcasses and case trim work? Is the 18 too
small for full size home trim? Is the 16 a compromise that may not
addequately address either end of the illustrated spectrum?
This message will not self-destruct in 15 seconds; it will be forever
archived as long as google pays the bills.
