From what I remember when researching, the Numax nailer looks to be the same as the Husky and they both look to be a re-branded Campbell Hausfeld (whom I assume are the manufacturer). 21 degree.

I've seen many warnings about poor quality HF nails causing jamming problems, but their line of nailers generally get decent reviews. I only have experience with their brad nailer though.

Framing nailer


A nailer that uses clipped head nails may hold more in it's magazine. But some area's codes require round head nails. I got a good deal on a lightly used Porter Cable clipped head nailer. It's not the latest model, but works great.

I agree that a DIYer may not need a pro model nailer. But the last thing I want, when I'm up on a ladder or holding a wall plumb, is a nail gun that jams. Spend a little more or wait for a deal on used. JMHO.
