As to the safety features of these nailers, they usually have a safe nose which needs to be depressed before its trigger is engaged and be pulled. For most types, they will also include an anti-marring tip made of rubber. This tip is made to be slipped on top of the nose's tip to prevent the nailer from possibly giving damage to the wood and molding which is being nailed.
Apart from working faster compared to the traditional hammers, this type of nailer can easily be used with just one hand - giving you a spare hand to hold the trim in place. Angled or straight type nailers can use nails which range from gauges 15-18 and come in strips of 50 to 100.
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.
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.
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.
