Looking for advice on a nailer and nails for a long run of picket (palisade) fencing.
Hello everyone, I am currently planning a long run of palisade fencing using pressure treated softwood. The total run will be 120m (140 yards) for which I intend to use pressure treated 4×4 posts, concreted (postcrete) into the ground.
Fence will be 6’ high, posts spaced using 3m (10’) 3” arris rails (triangular section), top, bottom and centre, and nailing on 4×3/4 round topped pales spaced 1” apart.
There is going to be a lot of nailing in this project and I’m interested in any suggestions as to what nailer and nails to use.
Initial thoughts are a Paslode IM350 and 2 1/2” galvanized nails – dovenailed into the arris rails.
Will that do it or is there something better. Please bear in mind I’m in England so I will be limited to Paslode, Hitachi, Makita or Bostitch.
Also, is an 8” round hole 2’ deep the right size for a 4” post?
-- cut twice, measure once, or is that the other way round?
