sometimes its not that easy. Only instance i can think of the top of my head was where i was bulding walls, up against the cinderblocks in my basement. The ciderblocks in my basement were very poorly done and they are not flat, straight, plumb, square, etc. So i tacked up a top plate with a brad nailer, where i thought the wall should go, built my wall (using a regular nail gun) and then when it was build i could tap it over to where it looked the best. Then after its in place, nail the top, and drill and anchor the bottom. I guess i could have drew a line on the ground and then ran a plumb bob down the entire length of my basement to make sure it would all work and then keep adjusting it accordingly, but id much rather waste $.25 cents in brad nails to save a half a day in layout
