I would like to ask for an explenation about Brad nailers; or to be more precise their types. I read somewhere here that there are three diferent types of these tools, and I would like to know what type would be the most appropriate for just small home repairs.
I'm not much of a craftsman or repairman :P but, i would like to venture in an adventure of woodworking, so it would be nice to know these things.

Thank you

Thanks for stopping by'
Brad nailers are nice. Brads are a little thinner than finish nails and work great for trim and building furniture.
There are different size guns available. The smaller guns will take up to a 1 1/4" brad. The larger gun will take up to a 2" brad.
There is also a gun called a pin nailer. I forget what gauge they are. They are a very thin fastener. Great for small trims like scribe molding
I would go with the larger brad gun. Then you have the capability of using the larger brads.
