    the angle wont matter, just make sure you get the correct nails 

    you could rent one for the weekend instead of buying it

    Use decking screws not nails, they hold tighter and are easier to remove if problems occur later.

      ..but use the best screws you can afford, get either Robertson (square drive) or star drive...never use Phillips heads for heavy screwing unless you want to pre drill every screw...and get DECK screws

    Over time, nails pull up out of the deck allowing boards to warp and destroy the appearance of a once beautiful deck.

    Don't use nails.

    Use screws and you will never need to worry about the nails popping up out of the boards.
