18-Gauge Brad Nailer Uses
Since brad nailers use thin 18-gauge brads nails that come in lengths up to 2” long, they leave a smaller hole and are less likely to split thin workpieces. They provide a strong bond between wood objects while reducing the need to apply putty to an unsightly nail hole. Due to the thin size of the nails it drives, brad nail guns are perfect for attaching narrow, thin pieces of wood to larger wood objects.
This makes them ideal for a variety of home improvement or renovation applications. Some of the best applications for this model include attaching cove, stop, rail, and baseboard shoe molding, installing detailed trim on the face of a cabinet, building small wood furniture pieces, and even easy home projects such as making picture frames.
