I am remodeling our kitchen and as part of that I am installing 3/8” beadboard around the island and 1/4 round at the joint of the floor and the cabinet toe kick.
I am looking at getting a brad nailer to help speed the installation and wondered if there are general guidelines as to what size gage gun to get for various applications as well as how long the nail should be.
I have a 23 gage pin nailer that I use for furniture projects but I use that to hold the trim in place when gluing. The 23 gage pins don’t seem substantial enough to hold the beadboard in place nor the 1/4 round without glue.
Should I get a 18 gage nailer and what length nails do I need to various thickness boards?
Also recommendations on what brand to buy would be appreciated.
Maybe this is a dumb question but I appreciate your input. All the stuff I have found on the internet is not specific as to what to use.
Thanks for your help.
