Installing quarter round

Is a power nailer highly recommended for installing quarter round? Seems like chance of splitting and damage from the head of the hammer is very great. Also, sinking heads with nail set is not always successful.

What type of nail/brad would one use if nailing into softwood baseboard with a power nailer?

What type of nail if installing with hammer?

If you use hammer and nail, pre drill the holes.

Use nails with a dimple on the head so the nail set won't move.

If you are not doing that much, hammer and nail will be faster considering the time to setup the compressor and adjust the bard nailer, IMHO.

A brad nailer or finishing nailer is super for installing shoe mold. 16 or 18 ga.

have done 2 rooms of wood flooring and used a power finish nailer both times with no problem.. anyway, i buy inexpensive unfinished qr and paint to match the baseboard, so no big loss...
