Hi, I hope someone can help. I have a panelling project where I need to use my Axminster headless pinner. It is the only pinner that uses 24 gauge pins, and Axi are out of stock, with no clear restock date. Does anyone have some to spare? 15 0r 18mm is what I need. They come in boxes of 10,000 and 1000 or so would be enough.
Will pay postage and for the pins of course.
Many thanks, Simon.

try 23g pins might work?
lesson here is to stick to industry standard! why would axminster import such a dodo. 15g is similar. very useful nails though!

Would be interested to know if 23g work as I have the same gun. I have some 20mm you could have if they are not too long for you?

I have checked with Axminster and they said they wouldnt be prepared to say if 23g will work and not jam the gun. I havent tried them. If i cant get 18mm then 20mm would be great. Thanks for your kind offer. I will get back to you in a day or two. Simon.

23 GAUGE STAINLESS STEEL HEADLESS PINS
On ebay for less than £20 / 1000 in the lengths you are looking for.
If a quick google is correct, 24ga are 22 thou' ( of an inch) diameter and 23ga are 25 thou'.
Thats about 15% wider.
Me, I'd try some 23 gauge in the hope that the more common, slightly stronger pins will fit.

Thanks for the offer Trevor, but I took a punt and ordered some 23 gauge pins, and am pleased to say they work perfectly in the Axminster 24 gauge pinner. Hopefully that will help anyone else looking as Axminster are still out of stock. Thanks for your suggestion Sideways, great minds think alike !
Simon.
