I am going to install 1 x 6 t + g or ship lap boards on the interior walls of my garage. I have worked with t + g before and used box nails to secure the boards. I am wondering if I could use my finish nailer with a 2" nail? will this work or will it split the tongue? Also, if we elect to use the ship lap instead, will a 2" finish nail be enough? thanks

Try using your regular gun with 2" commons I'm thinking would be the best, you want the head to stop the movement of the siding, I don't think a finish head will be adequate. Just set the pressure on the tank so that the heads are just slightly set so they won't interfere with the groove of the next board.

I use finish nails out of a gun all the time for this. I can show you a ceiling even that was done in '88 or '89 that is still fine.

If this wall suyrface is structural and likely to suffer stress, you can add construction adhesive to the backs in contact with the framing.

The oven instructions mention permissible wiring to a three wire wall connection, but they have no details. I was thinking the black and white from the wall are the two hots, and the bare wire is the neutral plus ground.

That would mean black to black, red(oven) to white (wall), and green + white (oven) to bare (wall)?
