I am in the midst of a siding project. I'm securing my siding using a Paslode CF325XP cordless 30° Paper-Tape nail gun. The nails I'm using are 3 in. x 0.120" Galvanized Ring Shank Paper Tape Framing Nails
When I fire these nails, the paper tape usually sticks to the head of the nail. I then have to tear off the paper from the nail heads before I paint them. This a tedious extra step that requires me to get back on a ladder. So I wonder:
- Is there a way to prevent the paper tape from clinging onto the nail head in the first place?
- Is there an easier way to remove the paper tape cleanly from heads? One idea I had was to put duct tape sticky side out on a paint roller on a pole.
