About the 18 gauge brad nailers:
I purchased a Harbor Freight 18 gauge brad nailer. I was very happy with the performance, but I noticed that the rear latch was made of soft plastic. If you dropped it once it would shatter the rear latching mechanism into bits. I returned it and got my $32 back (after tax). I went to all the major websites, Home Depot, Sears, Lowes, but Amazon had lower prices on all the different models of air nailers. I have been a mechanic and carpenter for 16 years. I built my own air compressor when I was a kid, so I have a very good understanding of air tools, and tools in general. I have not tried the WEN yet, as I just ordered it. But here are some selling points.
1.) The Dewalt has a lot of bad reviews about it jamming
2.) The Harbor Freight nailer spits a lot of oil out and can be messy, and had no power adjustment. It is also made of soft cheap plastic.
3.) The NuMax looks good, and will work fine, although it has no power adjustment, and no quick release to take the front apart to clear out jams.Read more ›
Unfortunately, the standards for nails are such that not all 2 inch nails will work with this gun, because believe it or not, 2 inch nails come in two different lengths. I have never found actual 2 inch nails: they are either a bit longer (51mm), like Porter Cable and many other brands, or a bit shorter (50mm), such as Bostich. Only the 50 mm nailes (such as Bostich) fit; 51 mm (like Porter Cable) does not; I have tried both brands.
This is unfortunate, because the 51mm type is more readily available, for example at Home Depot. I had to do a lot of looking around to find 2 inch nails that would work with this gun, but I did eventually find a store (a lumber yard) that carried the Bostich brand. It is obvious when the nail won't work: you simply cannot load it.
I bought this gun to be able to shoot 2 inch nails. It would have been a very simple engineering change to support both 50 and 51 mm nails. Therefore I am taking a star off for not supporting the commonly available 51mm size. I wish also that it would accept 5/8" nails. It actually might, but I'm not going to buy a package to find out that they don't work, or worse, that they jam the machine.
If you are considering this gun and want to use 2 inch nails, be sure a local store carries them before you buy it.
In hindsight I would have bought a brad nailer BEFORE I bought the stapler and then bought a better one than this WEN nailer so I could have used it for both projects and many future projects.
IF you need a nailer for a small project with thin wood like crown molding and do not know if you will use it later or very often then this WEN is probably worth while as it works "so so" and is inexpensive. If you anticipate many more uses or have a large project like flooring or entire house trim work I would suggest a higher quality brand nailer.
Just FYI, I searched and found no restrictions in airflow, no restrictions on adjustment dial, and I did use oil that came with nailer as instructed.

I couldn't use it because I misunderstood the description. I expected an electric gun and this one is PNEUMATIC so it needs an air compressor. Read morePublished 18 hours ago by DebH

How in the world did I live without an air nail gun? Even if used only once or twice, the cost is worth it. This thing drove 1.5 inch brads to attach a 1x4 into 2x4 like butter!Published 2 days ago by postoak
