I saw that yesterday on TV. Being that there is a safety mechanism on the nailer that require you to put pressure on the point before you can shoot a nail, I have come to the conclusion:

1. This has to be an elaborate hoax

2. If it is not a hoax, the safety mechanism was defeated

3. If the safety mechanism was not defeated, he or someone else, shot him in the head.

1] The dude's name is Dante Autullo.
2] http://www.hikenow.net/images/Italy/img/Italymap.jpg
3] The dude is a carpenter. Has a nail gun in his hand all the time.
4] Needed to scratch his head.
5] Forgot he had the nail gun in his hand.
6] Twitched his finger to scratch and...
7] Popped a galvanized sinker right into the ol' brain pan.
8] Which he doesn't remember doing because......

9) HE HAS A NAIL IN HIS HEAD

I rest my case.

Don't get down on yourself........... Sure, there are bigger dumbasses than you and probably always will be. But that shouldn't stop you from being the biggest dumbass you can be. You'll never know your true potential unless you try, and discounting your status is something only a dumbass would do.

So, you see? There is hope for you.

And whenever you need some inspiration, just remember the dumbasses who went farther than anyone thought they could....................

I am restoring an AA5 from the 1950's, and the case is plastic. The color is like a Mahogany swirl, with a gloss shine clear coat. I am going to have to re-finish.

I test spotted automotive clear lacquer on the bottom, and the results were no good. It ate away at the plastic. Krylon mas a Fusion plastic paint, but have not tried. I asked on Antiques Radio Forum, and no one seems to know.

Is there any kind of plastic clear coat that I can finely sand and polish after it dries? Needs to be gloss and not interact with the plastic.

And yes, A5CUP, it is for the Edsel.
Contact a local autobody repair shop. They use urethane paints and clearcoat finishes that should work for your project.The clear can be sanded smooth with 1500 grit wet or dry paper and buffed to a high gloss. Brands include>PPG,Dupont,etc..Jim..K7RDX....

If you're secure enough to risk losing your dumbassedness by a web site, click this: http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/tut/p/id/4523

The tutorial on Ohm's Law and calculating series / parallel values and such are always useful.
