    Hello all
    I'm currently renovating my own home and don't mind paying for good quality tools that will last but I'm not sure whether I will get my use from a nail gun.

    Although the whole house requires new skirting and architrave alike, Is it worth buying a paslode or dewalt or other brand?

    I've never used a nail gun and not sure if they are just used for bigger jobs?

    Can anybody help and if you recommend me to buy one can you suggest a model/type

    na, no point, buy a decent cordless, (Bosch blue) and buy a good SDS (Bosch Blue) and get a good hammer, and screwy and plug it all.

    I would only buy a nail gun if i would be useing it a few times each week etc.

    Why dont you fit all your skirting and then hire one for the day? it only take a couple of hours to go round and nail up and will only cost about 30 to 40 pound?

    all depends what your fixing into surely. Paslodes are no good for brickwork. I fix all my skirtings with gripfill and an air masonry nailer.

    hi mate. does anyone know of anywhere that fixes paslodes. the guy that works for me put the nails in the wrong way, the gun misfired and he opened the gun up. by trying to fix it he's knackered it. Im sure its missing something as well.

    After I bought my paslode I thought to myself...what the bejesus have I been doing for the last few years...it paid for itself in about 3 weeks.

    Must say, nailing under my thumbnail wasn't pleasant and I sure as * haven't done it again.

    Hey Galman, once you get that Paslode fixed I would try it out by nailing your employees hands to the floor! :)
