Depending on what those projects are. This shoots thinner nails that are good for lighter hold or if used with another adhesive like liquid nails and better for building most smaller wood projects like cabinets, small frames etc. For stronger holds of bigger wood pieces or baseboards I would recommend 16GA one (which makes bigger holes because the nail and head is thicker and bigger)
16ga for baseboards? that seems overkill, but I've have limited knowledge. I guess it depends on thickness and area. 18ga has worked for me.

I will never use a nail gun. They are very dangerous. Look at this guy who was a professional

I have the 18 GA nailer/stapler from HF [harborfreight.com]one and I don't like it too much because it dents/divots on basebaords and end hardwood pieces. Would this do a better job or should I look elsewhere. Also, is it worth it to pay for the angled ones?

Thanks in advance.
IMO, the combo nailer+staplers always will make big divots. A 18ga brad nailer will make a much smaller divot.

I'm hoping you don't drive or use a knife for cooking either, because holy wow I've seen what those 2 things can do.

Crown molding is the only thing that drives me crazy. I just cant get it right and always wind up buying those pre made inside and outside corners at home depot.
Depending where your shortcomings are in them there are either books or videos to improve the skills.
If it's getting the right angle then they sell a simple tool for measuring angles to get them perfect. If you use coping method it simplifies the corner gaps but requires some manual labor besides cutting a piece in miter saw. I use corner pieces that are made slightly bigger than trim to make them standout which looks better than just straight trim all around IMO.

I thought nail guns only go off when you touch the wood...

Rodriguez, 21, a graduate of Sam Rayburn High School, remembers the day of the accident as a regular day. Work was going well when a colleague accidently fired his nail gun as he prepared to holster it.

Remarkably, Rodriguez was only hospitalized five days. After more than a month, he slowly regained use of his arm. He still has limited use and often suffers headaches. That said, he's eager to return to work. His personal research tells him a full recovery from a brain trauma such as his could take six to 12 months.

You're using the wrong tool for the job. You need a finish nailer, not a brad nailer.

Thank you for responding, any suggestions on what a good one is? Also, is it necessary? In other words, what else can I use a finish nailer for besides baseboards? I do/make simple DIY things aroud the house.

Thanks again.

There's a depth adjustment on the nose of the gun, start there. If that doesn't help then turn down the air pressure. These things aren't ready to go out of the box because there's too many variables (nail type, wood density). Play around with the settings and it'll work fine.
Thank you and I did. It is just hard to get it right every time. Sometimes with the same pressure it will be too much, just right, and not enough. I was wondering if it is the fact that it is HF nailer has anything to do with the wood being marred. But maybe (most proabably) it is a user error

Is this overkill for stapling cables around the house?
You want an actual cable stapler. Home Depot has them, and there are several different kinds. Cable staples have a central raised part so that the staple doesn't crimp or break the cable, and they have various sizes for different cable types. If I remember correctly, they're about $30.

My point still stands. Wheels fall off cars, flat tires are common and can cause a wreck. Heck, you don't even have to be in the car that has the malfunction, chunks of tires fly off of big wheelers all the time. You don't even have to be behind the wheel, bathroom fans have caught houses on fire before. I'd wager a guess that accident rates due to malfunction of device (and not due to misuse) compared to the actual usage are pretty negligible and exist in all devices (powered or not).

You can't live life in a bubble. Respect your tools, wear proper ppe, service them per manuf. recomendations, and (if really worried) buy quality tools for $$+ for extra piece of mind.


edit:
Want to add, any tool that fires a projectile should be treated with similar respect as you would treat a firearm. Don't point it where you don't want it to go, regardless of safety mechanisms.

I've heard some staple through cards or cardboard to help.

I think this will drop in price again very soon because it has been this price ($29.95) since January 10 in all of the home Depots around my area.
