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.
Once you have properly aligned the nailer, push it gently toward the wood and depress its safety nose before pulling on the trigger. If you do things right, you should get the nail driven directly in the trim at your desired angle.
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.
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.
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.
