    https://angliatoolcentresales.co.uk/1LIL-5JYV9-FFJEDR39A2/cr.aspx?v=0 Just noticed this nailer as these have been discussed recently.
  2. Following my recent slight change to the thickness of the cladding battens in part of my wall buildup (which has saved me buying new windowsills!) I'll need to find new nails as well, as the 70mm ones I already have are going to punch through and neatly poke holes in the breather membrane. Looking for 15 degree flat collated coil nails, stainless steel, pref ring shank, anything from 40-60mm would do the job. Will need about 1000 of them. Just curious about where people source these, as the combination of stainless and coil makes them hard to track down. When I bought the 70mm ones I got a cracking deal on eBay- something like 6000 nails for £40. But the best I can find so far for these smaller nails is about £12 per 350 nails, plus postage, which is way more expensive. Am I missing anywhere obvious to buy these? I can find huge boxes (e.g. 16,000) or single coils, nothing inbetween.
  3. At the moment I am using two different nail guns: a Hitachi gas gun for framing, and a Clarke coil nailer that runs off a compressor and fires full head nails up to 70mm. initial impressions are that the gas nailer is handier in many ways, no hose to drag around behind you, but overall I don't think it's any faster to use as it has more issues with jams, cold gas, and of course needs reloaded more frequently. I have been surprised by how temperamental it can be below about ten degrees celsius. The coil gun has the option of sequential firing which can make scarily rapid progress on things like sheathing. Even running it off a cheap little 12l compressor it is faster than I am. The main thing that drove me to get the coil nailer was that I was able to buy stainless full head nails for a fraction of the price of the Paslode-type ones for the gas gun. I will need these for my timber cladding and the relatively cheap coil nailer has probably already paid for itself just through the difference in cost of the nails. Plus, no more taking out fuel cells and sticking them in your armpit until they are warm enough to work!
