    I will be installing a tongue and groove ceiling on the patio with 1" x 6" pine. I intend to nail into the top of the tongue so the nails will not be exposed. I've never used an automatic nail gun before and intend to purchase one for this and future jobs. Which type of nail gun would be best...

    Hi, I am a newbie at this, but am thinking of putting in stapled down hardwood in our kitchen. I got the HarborFreight hardwood nailer at a store (http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=99640) today, and am trying to find the right compressor for the job. I was in...
