Hi all,

I'm looking at buying a dewalt framing nailer for some upcoming projects, namely this one http://products.dewalt.co.uk/powertools/productdetails/catno/DPN9033SM/

Looking at nail availability, I can see some that are held together with paper tape and some that are welded together. I can't see anything on the page to suggest which type should be used or whether you can use either. Could anyone offer some advice please as I've only used a brad nailer before.

Thanks.

I've just looked on the page
http://products.dewalt.co.uk/powertools ... DPN9033SM/
and under "Overview" it says:

"Versatile magazine angle will accept most clipped head, and off centre round head paper tape or wire weld collated framing nails"

Well that will teach me to read things more closely. I genuinely read that page several times and have no idea how I missed that. Thank you.

The wire nails don’t work well with the dewalt nailer,nor do the round head.
Like fin says just buy cheap paper collated nails that come with the gas and sell or chuck the gas.
I’ll be honest I use the champion nails,they work great in the dewalt but are awful in my gas nailer.

are rawl nails a brand? I'll have a look at what the local merchant sell next time I'm in there

Don't have a gas nailer, just a brad nailer/stapler that came with the compressor.

Rawl is indeed a brand (as in Rawl plugs). They are HQd in Glasgow, I believe. Quality of their first fix nails I'v used is OK

Stocked by (amongst others) Selco if you have one locally, also by some hire shops (because they sell and hire Rawl gas nailers)

stevie, i was a trialist for the original dcn690 nailer. i had it 6 months before it was in the shops. while using the champion nails with it i was nailing something above my head and some of the coallated stuff fell inside it and goosed it.

its a weird gluey gummy sort of stuff. the regular nails like rawl, passlode etc all seem to be more a paper based tape
