    Hi George, thanks for the new video. I watched one of your other videos on finishing nailers and you made a point to drive the nail perpendicular to the wood, but on this video you use it parallel to the wood. What has changed?

      With the stark grain angle on the face frame piece in the Tips video, it would work better to hold the gun perpendicular to the face frame. In the Buying Advice video I wasn’t as concerned about technique as I was about showing the benefits of different features nail guns might have.

        Even if you hold the nailer parallel to the face you can angle it to avoid BLOWOUT. So why do you need to work perpendicular?

    This looked more like a commercial for the Bosch 16 ga. nailer than a buying guide. I wish it would have had more advice on which gauge to choose (by project, by wood species, etc.) or which length nails/brads to use (and, by extension, which gun to buy). Side topics which could have been included might have been safety and accesories. I saw this as fairly superficial and incomplete.
