Framing Nailer of Death!
Hi, I recently got my first framing nailer, "Northern Industrial 3-in-1 Framing Nailer" from Northern Tool. Admittedly, it is an El-Cheapo, China's Best, but are framing nailers supposed to throw out sparks when they fire? This thing shoots out sparks from the nail head, and worse, it will double fire - sometimes shooting a second nail on top of the first or right next to it. I've had some nails come out looking like Chinese Noodles, one was bent in a complete "U" shape. And, no, I don't have it set on rapid fire. I read on their website customer reviews saying they experienced the same things. Just wondering if all framing nail guns do this or is it because it's an el-cheapo?
BTW, I have a Craftsman finish nailer which works great - no sparks!
