electric nail gun...No good?

Doing a window trim installation, from stool/apron to 45 mitered trim. Need a nail gun. Trying to save as much as possible. Will a $30 cut it? Or do the extra power of a compressor and air nail gun?

My advice is to use a nailer run with a compressor, or simply hand nail it the old fashioned way. An electric nailer won't do the job.

Agree with WCB

Hi there,

I remember renting one of those Paslode brad nailers from HD a few years back. Just need nails and a gas cartridge. That would probably do the trick if you really don't want to hand nail it.

Good luck.
