Mind you, pnuematic nailers are honestly very simple tools as far as air tools go. The driver is simply a piston, with a simple connecting rod sort of arrangment. You would think that if a company is going to build a product that has a piston, a connecting rod, and motion, that there would be a wrist pin right? Well not in my first one. Now #2 is working great. It leaks a tiny bit of air, but that is my fault. I took the thing apart to inspect it and managed to tear one of the paper gaskets. It is simple enough to reseal this thing, I just haven’t bothered.
It drives all the nails I could want, it was cheap, and it fills the gap between the framing nailer, and the pinner just fine. This is a must have for my shop, and I am very happy with it, Well with #2 that is…
With all things considered, the fact that I got a quality control flub out the door isn’t that big of a deal. Harbor Freight’s customer service did exactly what they were supposed to do.
Just like the framing nailer, this lacks a case. No big thing, but a case would have been really nice for storage / shop organization.
