    Question about Paslode gas canisters

    Guys,

    Quoting on a skirting board job. I generaly use screws and cordless impact driver for all timber construction (don't like nails)

    For this job however I will need to use brads. Bunnings has a rental setup for the Paslode Angled Brad gun, but you still need to purchase the consumables (nails and gas).

    So my question is : are the gas canisters re-usable, kinda like your typical tramping gas stove canister, or are they punctured once inserted and if you remove them the gas vents ?

    Will I be able to remove the canister and use it again for a future job, or is it a once-off type deal ?

    Cheers

    The empty ones go great in a fire. Stand well back though.
    Overkill is still dead.

    +1 for going good in a fire. Yeah good for multiple use. Bradders have different size gas than framers

    only chuck one in the fire at a time.....

    They do expire so if you are only doing the odd job then just buy some panel pins and do it the old fashioned way...

    the old straight braders take the same gas (or small cylinders with an adaptor) the only difference is the nozzle. yellow for the brader, red for the framer.

    Yeah, the builder who lived a couple of houses over from us used to throw the odd one in his offcut fire, I reckon it moved our house further away from his!

    I rekon there’s got to be a better option than using @BRADS. Have you seen his building skills?

    The gas goes off if stored too long. I have some pneumatic guns and a small compressor you can borrow for free if you only need it for a one off job. I bought them for work around the house as they are not used all the time.
    Cheers, James.
