Fair enough. Have looked for previous deals, and they're about the same price.

A lot??
I've seen them for £135 but haven't seen them any cheaper.
yeh got mine for 136 and not seen them any cheaper.
Be warned they do stop working a while after first use due to lubrication issues.

Its not terminal but worth mentioning.
Are these any good for pallet wood projects (planters, bird boxes etc.)?

I’m fully bought into the Dewalt 18v kit but I think both of their nailers are too powerful for that kind of application so was considering the Ryobi (I like the look of their router too).

Dewalt do an 18g nail gun perfect for that.

Search for: Dcn680 18g

The dcn660 16g nailer would be suited to pallet wood projects though.

Thanks for the tips. I looked at the 660 before and thought it might be too powerful but it seems you can dial down the power so I might give it a whirl. The bare DeWalt unit works out cheaper than starting with the Ryobi, batteries, charger etc.

Hope you don't mind the questions as you seem knowledgeable on these products; what would be the difference between the 660 and the 680 - would the 680 be suitable for more delicate work (frames, thinner wood projects etc.)?

Most of my projects use reclaimed pallet timber which is mostly soft (there are some harder pallets I've had which bend nails for fun) but it seems the 660 would be good with that.

Just trying to work out if I could get away with just one (the 660) or would need both.

Hey.

I’ve got all the dewalt nailers lol and a lot more.

Nail guns are ranked by their gauge - 23/18/16/15g then framing nails. Watch a YouTube video explaining this, it’s worth your time.

23g are super thin and barely any holding power. Just for bringing two pieces of material together and holding whilst a glue sets.

18g has a very thin Brad nail but with some holding power, non-structural though. I’d use it to tack on architrave around a door frame, for example. Then again, sometimes I’d use a 16g but it’s more touch up work after.

16g is a thicker nail again but much stronger for more structural components. I’d use this as a fixing on skirting boards plus a glue. For pallets work, this would be perfect as a sole fixing.

All dewalt guns have variable power levels (ie how far or not you want the nail to sink into the wood) and bump/sequential operating modes. Importantly. They take a wide array of nail lengths of which importance cannot be underestimated. Watch a video on youtube and you’ll understand.

For a birdbox, a 23g plus glue would be sufficient, an 18g nail would be my preferred choice.

For pallets a 16g nail is fine but for finer work perhaps an 18g plus glue would be wiser. Depends on the project.

Dcn680 - 15-50mm length nails
Dcn660 - 32-63mm length nails

Thank you very much for the info - very helpful indeed.

Most of my YouTube history right now is powertool reviews I've gone from being the worlds worst DIY'er to having a huge selection of DeWalt tools and taking on pretty much anything (the old saying about having the right tools for the job is absolutely spot on). I'll have a look at a couple of video's on the differences between the two but what I take from what you've said is that the 660 paired with the right nails will cover most of what I want to do.

I watched a couple of videos on making miniature planters (for indoor plants) and those are quite delicate* which I think the 680 might be more suitable for but I've not made any of those yet (and with a stock of pallet wood to get through first, won't be doing any time soon).

* delicate as in probably 5-10mm wood, but they used a nailer in the video, it's just it was a compressed air variant which I'd rather avoid.

Thanks again for all the info.

Based on what you’ve said here, I’d suggest 18g and glue for your projects.

You’re welcome
