    When using a powered nailer, is there a trick to getting it to drive the nail in straight? I keep doing it at an angle and the nail sticks out of the wood.

      Yes, the trick is to hold the gun straight. Unless the nail hits a knot in the wood, it's going to travel in the direction that it's aimed. It's just like a bullet traveling from the barrel of a gun.
