We often see jamming with stainless wire collation - the problem is almost never the gun, it is because the stainless wire is much harder to shear off than regular steel. I would suggest trying another brand of nail and see if that helps.
Also, yes, the trigger is all that is required to change it to sequential, it is a very easy swap.
The numbers on the side of a framing square are used for many things. The small leg allows you to quickly lay out a wall on16" centers. The other rows of numbers help you figure the correct sizes to cut for hip roofs (roofs that have slope on all four sides.)You can get an instruction Manual from Stanley or it may be availabile on the net. Google (framing square instructions)
A standard square is used primarily for drawing 90 degree angles. Simply hold the fat side of your square firmly against the length of rafter. The skinny side of the square should be lying accross the rafter, forming a 90 degree angle with the side. Use a pencil to draw a line along the edge of the square and use this line as a guide while sawing the rafters.
Assuming you already know the angle you require, take the edge with the level on it(if you have that model) or the side that hangs over and hook it on the edge of the board. If you look at the top, on the 90 degree end, it says "pivot", and that is where you will spin the square around. You read on the 45 degree end that was hooked to the board for you angle. If you are trying to cut a rafter at a specific pitch such as a 6/12 you will spin the square around until the 6 on the Common scale lines up with the edge of the board. The Hip/Val scale is for cutting hips and valleys for the roof structure. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me here
take your board make a mark on the side of board put your speed square on that mark(the squared side)flat up agianst the board rotate the square until the 15 deg comes to the other side of board then make your line.
