While working on the trim for our shed I was a bit overwhelmed by the number of nail options in the tool section, specifically nail gun options. I currently own this combination kit from Porter Cable. Sadly, it lacks the angled finish nailer required for all types of exterior nails.
Choosing the right nail gun can be a bit confusing, especially if you have limited experience using them. I’ve used nail guns before, but it’s been a while and someone else had the right one already selected for me. I decided to do a little research and put this graphic together for myself and thought it might be useful for others.
So if you’re debating about which nail gun to use, here’s a visual as well as a chart you can download and stash in your tool bin.
