    I’m looking for an electronic nailer for the installation of skirting. I’ve seen a DeWalt one in use. Conscious DeWalt isn’t cheap. Which should I get for this purpose?
    Thanks, Chris

    What would you use? Can someone recommend me a spec for skirts and architraves and I’ll go for a suitable product...

    Can't remember the last time I saw someone use something other than a nail gun for skirting on site at least.

    In view of the fact that most skirting is 18mm these days and that it's the grip adhesive which actually does the job of holding the skirting in place, on standard 12mm plasterboard why on earth do you need pins longer than 50mm? We use 32 and 50mm most often - just because a gun has a maximum capacity of 64mm (16ga) dosn't mean that 64mm pins are mandatory, surely?

    I once made the mistake of buying the Tacwise Duo 35 Stapler/Nailer (230V).

    It is complete and utter rubbish. The Tacwise branded brads frequently go stuck down the side of the firing arm. Oh, and the flex was only about 1.5 or 2m.
