I've been a carpenter/contractor for 44yrs, completing a 4yr advanced apprenticeship, working on three continents in commercial and residential construction. I also have a degree in construction technology and know my facts, thank you.

Question

fasteners for 7/16 OSB sheathing on a shed


Thanks, Ron but my question was not whether 2-3/8 was gonna be long enough but whether it would be too long.

To answer the posters question, no they are not too long, just takes more effort to put them in thats all.

How much more effort does it take a gun to shoot a 2-3/8" nail compared to a 2" nail?

No, no hugs required, just wondering if you are the pot and I am the kettle or is it the other way around, who the hecks the fire.

I would staple with 1 3/4" medium crown staples.

They hold tight and are very economical....if you have the gun to shoot them.

It's a brainf**t thing with me. Always has been. I get it into my head that an 8d nail is eight 1/4s which is 2" but of course it isn't. So much for experience. Not to worry, I'll get you back when you least expect it!
