Brad nailers are also known as pin tools or finish nailers. As the name suggests, these nailers are used for finishing purposes, and the nails used are much smaller in size and often rounded so that they are not very visible to an onlooker. The nailers are usually stick-type and are commonly used for punching in the last few nails to add the finishing touch to the project. They are designed to work on lighter and smaller materials.
When you're using the finish nailer, have the tip positioned on to the trim board where you want to have the nail driven. Then, carefully adjust its position so that you'll drive the nail in the right direction. Usually, when the finish nailer's cylinder and its tip line up perpendicularly to the board's face, it gets your nail driven squarely in the board. In some cases however, you need to adjust the nail's angle so you can capture enough wood behind the molding or trim you're using.
When you work on a finish nailer, you need the head to be just below the board's surface so it can be filled easily with the nail filler. If your nails haven't been sunk completely, you can use a hammer and a nail set to drive them in completely (although, this is extra work which you shouldn't have to do if you do things right). The problem which you usually get is caused by either an insufficient amount of pressure from the compressor, or the depth on the adjustment dial which wasn't set correctly. If you're not sure with the settings you need to use, consult your operating manual and follow the instructions on how to correctly modify the depth adjustment.
