Finish nail gun - This nail gun drives either 15 or 16 gauge nails - depending on the finish nailer - and is used for crown molding, baseboards, cabinets, chair rails, wood furniture, decorative trim, millwork, caskets, hardwood flooring, furniture and paneling.
Keeping this in consideration, what kind of nails to use for quarter round?
Attaching Quarter Round. Because it's finish trim, install quarter round with finish nails, which have smaller heads than standard nails. A finish nail gun, fitted with 1.5- or 2-inch finish nails, works well. You can also drive finish nails the old-fashioned way -- with a hammer.
What is the difference between a brad nailer and a finish nailer?
So, it's easy to determine the difference between the two nailers if you think of it in terms of size. The smaller brad nailer does not have the same holding power as a finish nailer because it technically doesn't use nails. Brads are essentially a thinner gauge of nail used to attach lightweight trim.
How far apart do you nail baseboards?
If you nail near the bottom, you can usually hit the horozontal boards under the studs in the wall and therefore can put nails anywhere. I would just put them every 16 inches or 2 feet.
