Pneumatic nailers use compressed air to power the tools. For the last few decades, they have been a mainstay in shops and on job sites all across the country. Pneumatic nailers have been developed for every phase of construction from framing and sheathing to roofing and finishing. Pneumatic nailers have very specific requirements for their fastener arrangements. Fastener magazines can be configured as either coils or sticks. Coil magazines hold many more fasteners without reloading. Stick magazines come either as straight or diagonal configuration, and the collation (the way the nails are attached to each other) can be paper, plastic or wire depending on the brand. Ring’s End carries a variety of nailers from a wide selection of manufacturers, as well as the fasteners for each of those nailers.
A pneumatic coil nailer comes in handy for work on the roof. This is a small pistol-shaped tool that helps you drive in fasteners. It is also known as a roofing nailer due to its heavy application in roofing jobs. The nailer is also useful for jobs on exterior drywall. Regular roofing nails cannot be used in the nailer but you must use nails that come on a coil. Although various tools are involved in roofing projects, the coil nailer has several advantages as outlined below.
Ease of Use
The coil gun is a small, compact tool. This makes it easy to work with. It also assists in portability. When you have to work in confined spaces, the small size of the tool makes it easier to operate. It eliminates much of the effort and strain associated with a hammer. You need not exert yourself as much physically. This reduces the incidence of fatigue. Most models of the coil gun incorporate an ergonomic handle. This gives you the best grip as you work. It also allows you to work more comfortably.
The coil nailer is a pneumatic tool fuelled by compressed air. This gives it a high power output. It allows you to drive in fasteners into shingles much faster than using a hammer. Besides the speed, it also does an accurate job. Once installed, fasteners remain securely in place. You’re unlikely to do repair work soon if a coil gun is used for the job. This contributes to the longevity of your roof. However, if a hammer is used, not only is more time and effort called for, but the shingles may not remain secure for long.
Most pneumatic coil nailers have a depth-of-drive dial feature which allows you to select the desired depth for the job. Whether you need to countersink the fasteners, shallow drive or to flush mount, the coil gun makes it easy to do so.
Most models accept nails that vary in length. These may range from ½-inch to under 2 inches. It gives you more flexibility in your work. Many models also have a zero nail lockout feature which keeps you from dry firing once the magazine is empty. Skid plates on the tool help keep the tool in place when placed on the roof.
High Holding Capacity
The pneumatic coil gun has a higher holding capacity for fasteners than most tools. The magazine can accommodate up to 150 coil nails. Once fully loaded, you won’t have to reload frequently. This causes fewer disruptions as you work. It reduces on downtime and helps sustain your focus. The tool lets you know when you need to reload. Not much time and effort is involved when you have to reload. This contributes to the smooth flow of work. It also enables you to complete work faster.
The pneumatic nailer is a dependable tool for roofing work. It has minimal maintenance requirements, which adds to its durability. When well taken care of, the tool can last several years in good condition. Pneumatic nailers have the housing made of durable metal such as magnesium or aluminum which adds to durability.
