What? That's never happened to me...rotflmao!
Thanks, Bill; I'll remember that info after the next time it happens to me.

I wonder if it's brand specific, or applies to all brad nailers?
OK. I thought about it. The brads are basically a 'T' in shape, with the weaker dimension being the thickness of the gauge of metal they're stamped from, as opposed to the distance across the leg of the brad in the direction they're being shot from the stick of nails. Does that make sense?
So, when driven, the nails will naturally deflect/deform in the direction of the weakest resistance...that's side to side relative to the stick.
Does that sound like a reasonable explanation?

I don't think this a problem with a single answer. The attached link has a list of Blowout causes.

Outstanding article! I think/agree that there are many factors involved to producing a blowout. Sometimes you just don't have any control. However, whatever you can do to minimize the result is well worth the effort not to put a fastener where it really doesn't belong, or isn't intended to be.

I have learned to keep my hands well away from the potential paths of air driven fasteners. Trust me, the VOE is loud in my head. Luckily, none were ever too serious. Minor pain and a little blood letting. Then again, what is woodworking without a little blood letting on occasion?

Safe or Not Safe was the theme. The bottom line, whatever, we can do to minimize or eliminate an unintended event is what we should remember to do before we pull the proverbial trigger.

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

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.
