A framing nailer is for building structural 'frames' - so thicker nails (around 3mm or 1/8"), often with rings around the shank to stop the nails moving or pulling out. They leave the nail head visible, it is usually for work that is not seen later on in the build process.
A finish nailer is for fixing items that will be seen once the build is 'finished' - door frames, skirting or kick boards, etc. The nails are thinner - usually from 18g to 23g (about 1mm to 1,6mm).
Then there are pinners for 'pinning' light items to cover joins around the finish trim - quarter rounds, etc,. These are usually 23g (about 0,5mm).
Of course, all these tools have other uses, I've tried to basically explain in the context of wooden framed house construction.
Hello, I'm having confusion about Finish and framing nailer. Could you please rephrase this?
Caliber of the nails is the difference 1'st fix or framing are nail guns or nailers that are of lesser caliber- thicker bigger that 15GA nails, commonly 2.6; 2,8; 3.2 and 3.4mm thick nails either coiled or in strips (most are angled) "collated", that are powered by either compressed air, gas, gas and battery or battery only type
2'nd fix or finishing nailers or guns or even brad nailers are anything 15GA or greater (thinner) nails (brads) commonly in strips angled or straight most popular 16GA, lately 18GA and 22GA are gaining popularity for use on MDF and other small mouldings, due to smaller marks left for finishing (filling etc). Most are battery powered, some are gas and battery powered, some are compressed air and few are electric (cable) powered
bengt: Oh please the ks60 is better in every way. 60 degree miter in both directions. Bevels past 45(essential in a saw that must cut on the flat) Bigger blade more capacity. The Metabo hpt has 57 degree miter max and 45 bevel max.

abdon: I stand corrected , the angle fence is only attaches with F -Tracks , what confused me was , that the Timberwolf site mentioned it will work with the NFU machine, yes it will work but only I guess when you use the Ftrack , with other tracks Like the KSS L.

glynnco: Did you order from GereedschapPro? I see them as in stock but I'm located in the US and am not sure if they ship here. I sent them an email asking about shipping but it was returned undeliverable...

jonathan: I've purchased a lot of stuff from our neighbours @ GereedschapPro.nl As far as I know they are one of the larger Mafell dealers in the EU. I can recommend them, they usually respond quickly.
