What is the difference between a nail gun and a brad nailer? A brad nail gun shoots smaller 18-gauge nails whereas a nail gun uses 16-gauge or 15-gauge nails. A brad nail gun is more suitable to attach small trim pieces without splitting the trim, whereas nail guns drive thicker nails, resulting in a stronger hold. Nail guns are used for a variety of sizes and applications.
What kind of nail gun do I need for small projects? For smaller projects, a brad nailer would be preferred over a standard finish nailer as it is used to attach small trim pieces.
Are cordless nail guns worth it? Yes – regardless of whether a nail gun is cordless or not, the fastest and neatest way to secure trims is with a nail gun. The clear advantage of cordless nail guns is that they are completely mobile so you don't have to worry about a trailing cord or whether you can reach where you need to be from the nearest plug. Which you prefer is down to personal preference.
Do all nail guns require an air compressor? No, not all nail guns will. Pneumatic nail guns require an air compressor to power. Alternatively, you can choose battery-powered nail guns.
