Hi guys,

I got a quick question for you, i have always used a 16ga finish brad nailer (like the smartpoint bostitch 16ga) to do the last few rows (using along with glue of course). My 16 ga just died on the last job and now i need a new one, and i was wondering if i should just upgrade to the 15 ga instead, i know the 15ga nail head are bigger, will it works?

Thank you for your advices.

If you keep the nail head aligned by holding the gun perpendicular to the grain and shoot into the soft part of the grain the wood patch ought to blend in better.
I get within a row by good target practice into the tongue at about a 70 degree angle.
Some people top-nail the last 5 rows. ?? So much faster? Who notices if it will be covered with furniture!
