I am thinking of getting a brad nailer. What size do I need for most small woodworking projects, like boxes, etc.? What do I look for as far as pressure needed, etc. Very vague about this. Please help. Thanks
I got an 18ga brad nailer from Harbor Frt for about $17 ON SALE and it works great... for my casual use... I use 1-1/4" brads mostly.oldnewbie said:I am thinking of getting a brad nailer.

Read the Feb 2007 issue of Woodworker's Journal on "The China Syndrome". EVERYTHING is made offshore, darn near! And there are varying degrees of quality. I just bought a Powermatic bandsaw, and they are made in Taiwan. And Delta, Grizzly, Craftsman, Jet, Rikon, Steel City Tools, "add your favorite brand here" are all made in Asia. You have low-end stuff, like Harbor Freight brands, and high-end products, like Powermatic -- you get varying degrees of quality depending on what you want to spend. But there is good news -- there are some great tools coming out of Asia.Lefty Lucy said:Dang. Mike, I hate doing this, but I just realized I don't know squat about what I'm saying here, and will apologize to you, sir. Chicago Electric , Central Pneumatics, Chicago Pneumatic, I got confused. It's Chicago Electric that I am familiar with. Is there a difference?
I just noticed Hitachi went from Made in Japan to Made in Taiwan to made in China. Does Made in Malaysia come before Made in Mexico, and is it before or after Made in USA?
