I bought the contents of a shop cabinet this morning, at a tag sale.

What is the application of these nails? I have at least these four sizes.

Thank you.

Thanks guys. I had not thought about that.

Do they need the rubber fins? I have not seen the pins without the fins.

I have a small ramset. All of the pens I have used have had fins on them.

Thanks again.

Different brands have different needs and a different setup.
I haven’t used a Ramset in years, but my last one was a Senco that didn’t need the plastic collars.
