Angled Finish Nails
Angled Finish Nails
What is the difference between straight and angled finish nails? This is in reference to the angle of the tool’s nail magazine. Angled nails have many benefits that include;
- Better Access into Small Areas
- More Accurate
- More Expensive
- Shoots thicker nails
Straight nails are less expensive but bulkier. Angled finish nail heads have a “D” shape that is more secure than the “T” shape of straight nails. The thicker angled finish nail may present a risk of splitting delicate trim.
Angled finish nails are more convenient when running trim. The angled nails can focus the driver into tight spots.
Galvanized Angled Finish Nails
Galvanized angled finish nails are protected with a zinc coating to slow down the process of rusting and corrosion. Galvanized angled finish nails will eventually rust but will last longer than non-coated angled finish nails. Galvanized angled finish nails are less expensive than stainless steel nails.
Different Styles of Angled Finish Nails
Some brands of angled finish nails offer two different kinds. Angled finish nails may be “DA” or “FN” style. These styles offer 2 slightly different 15-gauge angled finish nail standards. DA angled finish nails will have an angle of about 34 degrees. FN angled finish nails will have an angle of about 25 degrees. DA angled finish nails were pioneered by Senco. Bostitch introduced FN angled finish nails which are compatible with Bostitch, Makita and other nailers. Both styles of angled finish nails are available for use in different nailers. There is a larger product selection with DA angled finish nails. FN nailers offer greater angled finish nails collation density. This means you can potentially drive in more angled finish nails without needing to refill the magazine.
