modified nail gun

Unread postAuthor: schmanman » Sun Apr 09, 2006 8:36 am

I was thinking about getting a nail gun,then (tell me if I'm wrong) .dont they have apressure sensitive plate thingy,that must be pressed up against somthing in order for the nail gun to shoot (I'm talking about one of those air-powered ones) .I would either rivet a trigger on,so I cold press it without getting shot by a nail,or radiator hose clamp it down. this would be automatic,no? tell me if there are any flaws in my plan,or with using a nailgun. :D

That plate only acts as a safety. http://home.howstuffworks.com/nail-gun4.htm What you're doing might be illegal.

Well now that the treads back up I had a friend that tried this but taping that safety back and it only shot across his yard. It wasnt powerful.
