I am in the process of renovating an entire house. 1 kitchen, 3 bathrooms, & building 2 rooms in the basement. With that said here is my dilema. The 2 basement rooms are framed. I used my p.c. round head framer for that. now i see that i have crown/base moulding and chair-railing in both those rooms ( one is 10x13, the other is 13x18) as well as base and crown in the kitchen and baths. Some of the stuff is thin, and splitting is a concern, so the brad nailer seems like a ggod choice. I guess my question after all of this rambling is can i use a brad nailer for all of this stuff, or should a finish nailer be used for some? And what exactly is the "cut-off" between when you should use a brad/finish nailer? Do I need both? Ultimately i Guess the answer is yes, but I just need the guidance that the 17 year-old kid at Home Depot could not provide. Thanks a bunch.

Finish nailer --- brad too weak for what you want to do

What's a brad nailer used for? Gee, quite abit, it's just not the right tool for what you want to do. I use brads sometimes when I make raised panel doors, picture frames, craft items etc etc etc etc. Tell you the truth I use my brad nailer more than my finish nailer.
