Understanding Nail Gun Pressure Settings

In order to operate power tools properly, you must understand how to use them. Regarding a nail gun, you have to adjust the pressure settings each time you use it, which ranges between 70 psi and 120 psi. The right setting depends on the length of the brads you are using and the type of material you’re working with—softer materials require lower pressure settings whereas harder materials require higher settings. For example, you may need to go as high as 110 psi to drive a brad just below the surface of oak wood.
