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.
For projects that and make use of fragile materials and require very high accuracy while punching in the nails, a headless pinner is used. They are commonly used by craftsmen who design hand made products and need to use delicate fasteners to hold the pieces together. The nails used in this kind of work are usually without a head, and make very small marks when they are punched in, so that they are hidden well from view.
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.
Finish nailers - These products are also called brad and/or pin tools. They are meant for, as the name suggests, finishing work and hence the nails tend to be much smaller and smoother. They are usually stick-type nailers and are used fit on finishing touches like trimmings. They are generally much smaller and lighter than framer nailers and are meant for lighter, smaller materials. The nails on these equipment are often rounded and specialized so that they can be hidden with putty.
Air nailers are needed frequently in the house but unfortunately an all-purpose air nailer that can be used for multiple purposes is not usually available. There is a specific air nailer required for each construction product and very few air nailers can be used for multiple projects. There are separate nailers available that are used for working with thinner wood materials, but the same nailers cannot be used for projects using thicker wood slabs. A few of the air nailers available in the market have been discussed below:
