Used Fastener Guns For Sale
In the construction industry there is a wide variety of tools that all have different jobs to do. However, very few tools help speed up the pace you can work at like fastener guns do. If you are looking for used fastener guns for sale you will want to take a look over some of the different varieties of fastener guns to make sure that you are getting exactly what you need, and that there may not be another type of gun that could be better suited to the type of work that you are going to be doing.
Types Of Fastener Guns
Framing Nail Guns – Framing nail guns are some of the most verstatile types of fastener guns that are used in the construction industry. They readily accept quite a few different sizes, and styles of fasteners, making them easy to use in almost all of the situations that you will encounter while working. Most framing nail guns are pneumatic powered, which means they require an air compressor and hoses in order to operate properly. You can, however, find a few models that are cordless and battery powered, but you must make sure to keep them charged as the batteries do not typically last a long time.
Roofing Nail Guns – Roofing nail guns are built using pneumatic technology, much like framing nail guns, but they differ in the fact that they typically only accept a few sizes of fasteners. They do, however, use a different type of fastener holding system. Where framing nail guns typically contain a long case along the bottom of the gun to hold the nails, roofing nail guns will contain a basket on the bottom of the gun. The basket allows the user to hold quite a few more nails, and move along the roof much faster than a framing nailer would allow for.
Siding Nail Guns – Siding nail guns are built using the same methods as roofing nail guns, and are actually quite similar. However, one distinct different in siding nail guns is that they use much lower air pressures in order to sink the nails. The lower air pressure helps to avoid having the hammer in the nail gun damage the siding materials that you are working with. This can be a huge problem for your workers, which could end up costing you a lot of money by using up more materials than you should have for the job. Siding nail guns have more delicate air pressure controls on them than other guns, to help you avoid having this problem happen.
Finishing Nail Guns – Finishing nail guns are much lighter in weight, and fire much smaller fasteners than the previously mentioned models. The design of the finishing nail gun is to prevent the hammer inside of it from damaging the materials that you are working with, and creating a clean looking installed fastener. The pressure in these guns is also much lighter than framing and roofing nail guns, to help prevent cracking of the wood when the nail is set. The finishing nails used are much smaller in size, and finishing nail guns readily accept different sizes of finishing nails, to accomodate a wide range of situations and thickness of materials.
Powder Actuated Guns – Powder actuated guns are most typically used for securing fasteners into concrete, bricks, and cinder blocks. The design of the powder actuated fastener guns acts more like a firearm than the previous models of nail guns that we have discussed. They use small bullet-like casings, with gun powder like substances to provide a lot more power to the fastener than what would be possible with pneumatic air guns.
Drywall Screw Guns – Drywall screw guns are used for hanging sheet rock, and feature a head that allows the screws to sink deep enough to secure the sheet to the studs or firring strips, but not too deep that it penetrates the top layer of paper in the sheet rock. This allows the user to quickly move from screw to screw, preventing them from having to worry about damaging the sheet rock because they are sinking the screws too deep, or holding the board in place for too long and having it crack on them.
Rivet Fastener Gun – Rivet fastener guns are most typically used in metal fabrication shops, though they do still have some uses in the construction industry. They fire small rivets, or fasteners into the metal that you are working with, and act much like a welded piece of material, holding two items together. Rivet guns come in a wide range of sizes to help accommodate different situations that you will encounter, such as when you are working with different thickness and density metals.
