  • Which Nail Gun?

    I need some advise about which nail gun to purchase.

    I have approx 7 different pelmets to put up so thought it would be easier to do it with a nail gun. Can anyone recommend one to me?

    Do you use an electric one?
    Air Operated one?
    Battery operated one?

    Any advise greatly appreciated.
    Kindest Regards,
    Karen

    Hi Karen

    I use an electric nail gun, standard from B&Q - The most important thing is to be sure you can get a regular supply of nails to fit the gun.

      Thanks for the reply Philip, do you know what size nails go in it?

      Seems odd to be talking to you, whilst you are on holiday!!! Hope you are enjoying yourself.

        It's awful Karen, I'm suffering 36 degrees here and all I have is a private pool and cold beer to console myself... Small nails..

            I have an Arrow nail gun and combined stapler. You have to buy special nails for it. The only thing with nailing that once its on you wont be able to move it so you would have to make sure it was in perfect position

              This is very true Karen and one of my concerns.

              Has anyone got any other ideas about fitting pelmets? other than nailing them on? Velcro itself will definately not be strong enough.

                Hi Karen,

                Are you talking about fixing plywood covered board to a pelmet board?

                I think velcro is certainly strong enough. I attach fabric tabs with loop velcro to the top of the pelmet - separate tabs for the front edge and returns, then attach to the hook velcro stapled to the top of the board.

                Another way, before covering with fabric, is to screw the plywood to the board, along with returns, make a box. Cover the whole thing, and fix with brackets. More work, but a very substantial finish.
                Kind regards
