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.
Roofing and siding nailers are of similar size, roofing coil nailer will often have adjustable shingle guides to help keep your work consistent. If you are looking at a gun for dry wall, fibre cement or any project that marks easily you need to be sure the nose of the gun is not sharp and aggressive. On the other hand an aggressive nose is very handy on most other projects making it easy for the tip of the coil nailer to grip to the surface you are nailing when angle nailing.
For projects using thicker and denser materials for construction, framing nail guns are specifically used. They can drive in large box-type nails that are about 1"-4" in size. These nailers are usually large in size and are quite heavy.
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.
