I've got some work to do repairing a fence for an elderly friend. Another friend offered me his compressor and framing nailer. He's a DYIer, same as me, and has only marginally more experience with air nailers than I do.
I know about the different types of nails you have to purchase, and you have to match the nail to the gun, etc.
I also know from having repaired the fence on my own property that the nails used to attach the pickets are a little smaller than the nails used for attaching the rails to the posts.
So, here's my question: is there a nail gun specifically for the pickets? Or do I use a framing nailer with shorter nails? I can swing a hammer with the best of them, but if I could use a nailer it would certainly make the project go faster.
