  • Do Porter Cable Brads Work Well with the Ridgid Brad Nailer??

    The local Home Depot only sells 18 ga. Porter Cable brads. Do the Porter Cable brads work well with the Ridgid 18 ga. nailer? The reason I ask is that I thought I had read somewhere that Porter Cable brads were slightly longer and tended to jam and/or not counter sink properly.

    If Porter Cable brads are not recommended, what other brands work well with the Ridgid nailer?

    Thanks

    Unlike some framing nailers and finish nailers, I believe that 18 gauge brads are pretty much universal. I've never experienced any problems using Bostich brads however I don't have a Ridgid Brad Nailer so I can't speak to how well they would work in yours. Some people swear that the brads sold at Harbor Freight work fine in their guns although I myself wouldn't recommend them as I did have problems getting their staples to work in my stapler.

      YEP! (That's all I have ever used in both my Ridgid Brad Nailer and Straight Finish Nailer.)
