Nail Nailers

Recommended Posts

I'm not new to building model  tanks, planes, but new to tall wooden ships.  I have ordeedr several books and ready-mades to see what I can do.  So far I'm tied up reparing and upating the models sent to me.  I' would like to know if there is a nail nailer that takes more than just one size hobby nail.head.

Amati makes one that has an add-on tube available for small nails.

They also have some very fine nails available.


You will still need to predrill at least part way, and also give it a final tap with a hammer to set it.


So far, I am liking this device


(Obtained the nailer and fine nails (pins) from Cornwall Model Boats.  Shipping is very reasonable for small packets.)

Hi Nirvana, as Brian says your's looks a good profiler.  I also have made good use of one; it is metal but is a little "stiff" and takes a bit of mucking around pushing individual needles to get the best contour.  Your's appears to have a tensioning knob on the ends?  If it does, where did you get it please?
