What air compressor and Nail gun do you use9/8
What air compressor and Nail gun do you use to install crown at the job site?
quick grab, small, I use a tiny senco.. about the smallest one they make i'd imagine. But for a one man show, with a bit of time between shots, it works.
Beyond that we are running a 200+ PSI dewalt oil-less. Will keep up with a couple guys at any pace all day long.
It depends on how you work.
For single man installs and punch, I use the small Senco. Very lightweight and very quiet.
I ran a Makita hotdog for about 10 years until the seals went. Then I switched to the small Senco. I liked it, but like others have mentioned its definitely a one person compressor. Currently I run the smallest aluminum Maxus twin tank. Its light and will easily run 2 trim guns or 1 framing gun.
I still love my Hitachi 15 gauge. I'll figure I'll die before it does. I guess that means its heirloom quality.
What is the best nail gun and gauge installing hard maple trim mostly
16 gauge bend easily, 15 gauge are the best. They pull harder because of the head shape. I think the 16 gauge bend because of their rectangular shape. The round 15 gauge are pretty hard to bend. We also use an 18 gauge on the inside of the door casing.
Also, I wouldn't hang doors with a 16 gauge.
I like the Hitachi and Bostich 15 gauge.
I used to work with the Senco
