Safety first! Let's talk about eye protection, hearing protection, and safe woodworking practices to prevent injury and keep you healthy in the workshop.
I’m looking at buying a 15- or 16-gauge finish nailer for my shop. From my experience, 18-gauge brads tend to follow the grain and blow out the side. Would 16-gauge nails act the same?

Few air cleaners are UL-approved. Am I the only one to run into this?
