I have the FN250 and for around the house stuff, it is perfect.

Another tip, if you find yourself nailing between studs and you are only going to hit drywall, drive the nails at a 45 degree angle to the face of the trim. if you can drive one nail one direction and one nail the other direction. This will essentially pinch the drywall and give you a little more grabbing power from the nails.

Oneal offensive?

Nah......never!!!!

The tools don't make the craftsman......a true statement often overused by individuals who haven't a clue about quality tools or true craftsmanship.

How can a simple topic like installing baseboard generate so many responses?

No albums in "My Photos" .... no pictures posted in 660 threads that I could find....
The rule here is without pictures it didn't happen...... except on the Internet, where you can say/post anything and lots of people will believe it.....

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

When you are doing "virtual woodworking" projects go much faster so there is more time for idle chatter.

Enough has been said about how to fasten the base to the wall and although it wasn't asked by the OP, I would suggest you use a soft wood rather than MDF for the baseboards, especially if any of it will go in a bathroom or kitchen. Water and MDF do not mix, one accident and the MDF swells and is ruined. Just my two cents.

When someone has to ask questions about running simple / basic baseboard...

THAT speaks volumes about their 'skill level' right there.

Baseboard around a curve is one thing and so is baseboard around a curve and up an incline. Running baseboard when someone just gives you a picture or a sample of some stock and then says, "I want it like THIS"...

But this???

Yeah? And being an arrogant jerk when someone tries to further their knowledge speaks volumes like yours. Theres no harm in asking a question, and trying to further ones knowledge is in no way indicative of skill level. Quite the opposite actually, the ones who think they know it all generally do a worse job

When you are asking questions about running simple baseboard - It IS indicative of your 'skill level' my friend.

Please post some pictures of the 'job' you have done here when you get time.

When someone ask a question we try to answer it the best we can, attempting to point out or second guess someone's skill level isn't what this forum is about.
