Nailers are not your usual power tools and a general, all-purpose tool does not exist. There are many different types, makes and brands, and every type is meant for a specific purpose. Some are meant for thinner, lighter materials while others are meant for denser, heavier materials. Here are the reviews of some of the more common types of nailers.
Another specific category of highly specialised nailers are the siding nailers that are built for the purposes of nailing down siding. They are designed to contain a large magazine of specially designed coil type nails.
The next thing for you to do is determine what you intend to use your new coil nailer for? Each nailer has its own uses. Coil Framing Nailers are larger packing more punch, driving in nails averaging 2 ½ to 3 ½ inch in size which is ample size nails for framing. I have never used over a 3 inch nail in all the years I have been framing. A distinct advantage of using a coil framing nailer over a stick framing nailer is that the magazine hold considerably more nails.
I have fallen victim in the past buying cheap imports thinking I had found a bargain but in fact it was just the opposite, those imports did not even finish the first project I was working on at the time of purchase.
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.
