Re: Air Nailer - Stapler
You're likely to get a wide range of opinions on this. I still build my boxes the old fashioned way...hammer and nails.
For frames I use a narrow crown stapler and an 18ga brad nailer. All joints get glue. 1in narrow crowns for the top bar and 1in brads in the bottom bar. I tried to use the narrow crowns on the bottom bars but they seemed to damage too many bottoms. Since the bottom bar doesn't really have much stress or load the brads/glue work fine.
