Unhappy

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

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.

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.
