Cedar Shake Tools?

I've got a cedar shake roof that I'm going to re-roof myself. I did shake roofing for about 3 months some 25 years ago.

My question is what's a decent compressor and gun to buy?

Any other thoughts or links appreciated!

Thanks, Fred

Most code jurisdictions allow either staples or nails for shakes. I believe that nails are 8 penny galv and staples are 2 1/2" long. Siding ciol nailers work for the nails, a staple gun for the staples. Senco and Bostich are popular. Go to the Red Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau web page for exact info.
