Interesting... but you could point out the reasons for choosing box over common nails... standard head nail vs. duplex...casing vs. finish nails...also, what's a "sinker" nail vs regular nail and why use one.
Also, what's the conversion w/ nail gun sizes... most nail gun nails are very skinny vs even box nails.
I like the article, but it needs more details.
