I have spent my life as a carpenter on building sites making a living from the talents of the trade that I posses and the vast array of quality tools in my kit. They say a good tradesman should never blame his tools! Which is true, and I have never met a good tradesman with low quality tools.
The finish nailer is among the most useful tools for those who are doing woodworking. They help nail moldings as well as other small trim boards easily. You can drive thin finish nails through boards of hardwoods and softwoods, as well as manufactured products like MDF, while leaving behind a really small nail hole which you can fill easily with a wood filler. Another benefit of having to use a thin nail is that, you're less likely to split delicate trim boards compared to using larger types of nails or even wood screws.
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.
