plastic collated nails
 
I just bought a craftsman framming nail gun (air). Ithought I got a good deal untill I went to buy plastic collated nails. The guy at lowes told me they are hard to find. Can I use wire or paper collated nails instead.
Thanks

lowes doesnt sell craftsman thats why most likely. Go to sears they will have it if its a craftsman product.

Hi Harley,

All of my nail guns will accept and run either plastic, paper or wire as long as the strip angle is correct. I have been running these for about 8 or 9 years without a problem, no Craftsmans though. :no:

Doesn't that nailer take the standard 20-22 full head nails? HD stocks Grip-Rite and Lowes has them under a different brand (same box though). They should be available everywhere.
