I use everything from [in nailers, to finish nailers to narrow crown staples… Air for me.

But, I do have my first battery operated 18 ga nailer, a Ridgid one. I love it on the jobsite, and will grab it from time to time in the shop.

But, I always have a hose hooked up to my 26 gallon compressor… And a lot of the time, it is full of air.

A few advantages of air tools: they are lighter and the driver area is smaller, allowing you to get into smaller spaces; you can use an air gun to blow dust and grit and chips off of anything; and, a compressor fills up faster than a battery charges (most fo the time, anyway) and I tend to run out of battery when I am grabbing the nailer during a difficult glue up with squeeze out everywhere!
