The key to the Jacobs chuck for the lathe isn't spring loaded. The one for the DP is, though. I could mount the zinger on the wall by the lathe.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

My first shots would be towards the joint to pull it together. Then I would angle one of two the other way to cross nail and lock it. My personal preference anyway.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Come on guys!

Air gun nails have a tendency to bend when shot into the edge of the material. Which way do you hold the gun when nailing a butt joint to prevent the nail/brad from blowing out the side? Do you hold the gun parallel to the joint or perpendicular to the joint to prevent the blowout?

OK, since most of the GURU's here are afraid to answer the question, (afraid of giving the wrong answer), I'll solve the mystery for everyone.

Pins/brads have a tendency to deflect, especially in plywood. By orienting the gun properly, it helps to keep it from blowing out the sides.

Here is one link to a pretty good description/explanation, complete with a quick sketch, that I found.

So, following the theme of Safe or Not Safe, watch and learn!
