I am getting ready to assemble about 100 frames and I want to buy a pnumatic nailer to make it as painless as possible. I already have the compressor and several other nail guns but I do not have anything for small work.

I am trying to decide between the following:

a 7/16" Crown. 18-Gauge Staples. 3/8"—5/8" Lengths. Senco

a Heavy-Duty 1-1/2" x 1/4" 18 Gauge Narrow Crown Stapler. Dewalt

a pin nailer,  drives 1/2"—1" 23 gauge micro pins. Senco

a brad nailer, drives 18 gauge brads from 5/8" — 2". Senco

I was wonder if any of you have any experience using any of these and what works best.

Thanks for any opinions and suggestions based on your experiences.

I have a 1/4" narrow crown staple.  I use 1" staples on the frames.  I use 1 1/2" staples on boxes.  I use 5/8" staples for putting the shims on my tops to make the entrances.  I use 1 1/4" to put hand rails etc. on my long hives where I want to nail two 3/4" boards together and not have the staples stick out.

It works great.

staples are much sturdier, but given how their jointed together a brad would work just fine.

I put mine together with a 16-ga finish nailer and 1.25" nails.

to attach the foundation I used 5/8" brads shot from an electric staple gun.

try tool crib of the north at amazon.com. I got a factory refurbished Porter Cable nailer from them. Works like it's brand new.
