Buyer Beware!

Buyer Beware!

11-16-2012 09:02 PM by cstrang | 28 comments »

I bought this at Home Depot about a year ago and so far it’s been nothing but trouble! I wanted a stapler and I think this was on sale for $110.00 at the time. It was a brad nailer as well, but the stapler was the reason I purchased it as I already own a brad nailer. I didn’t use it as soon as I got it home as I was busy with other things and I guess that was my mistake, if I had of used it there and then it would have been back to the store immediately. It was a little over a ...

Couldnt be more dissapointed in my  bostich compressor

Couldnt be more dissapointed in my bostich compressor

08-14-2010 05:36 AM by jordan32407 | 10 comments »

I bought this compressor thinking it was a good deal, I used, and a it a few times to blow up a car tire, then for a roof and a few pieces of trim work. Then the regulator (thing that controls outlet pressure) control stripped out. I beleive its because it is cheap and it cant handle the pressure in the tank being on it over time. and no i didnt leave the tank with pressure in it all the time. A quick fix to get you by if you cant for a new part or like in my case it gets stripped out, is to...

Great compressor!

Great compressor!

I recently bought my Bostitch Trim Air compressor. from Amazon.com for $80.30 and UPS delivered it in a couple of days. There was no damage to either the factory packaging, nor the compressor. I am real impress so far. Pros Light weight., It is easy lug it around when I need to nail up some cabinets or trim. Powerful enough to run my finish and brad nailers. I have not tried it with a framing nailer yet. Noise level. At 75 db, the Bostitch I think its quietest in its cl...

Economical Brad Nailer

Economical Brad Nailer

10-05-2009 07:02 PM by nmkidd | 12 comments »

Bostich BT200k 18 Gauge Pneumatic Brad Nailer. The unit came with a case, instructions and warranty. The housing is magnesium and is very lite weight (listed at 6 lbs). It is also oil free, which I find to be a plus. There is an adjustable depth control and a sequential trip mechanism. Recommended air pressure is 70psi to 120 psi. It will shoot brads from 5/8” to 2”. This is a factory reconditioned item and comes with a 1 year warranty. Cost was $34.99 including shipping from ...

What is wrong with Bostitch?

What is wrong with Bostitch?

07-31-2009 04:36 AM by sboyle | 33 comments »

I bought a compressor not too long ago. It ran good for a while and now the pressure doesn’t build up. From what I read it is the valve assembly. I don’t know if I should replace it or just buy another brand. I thought Bostitch made good tools but this just changed my opinion. I read that one person actually replaced it 3 times. Am I wasting my time with this one? Should I toss it and buy another brand? Any opinions would be appreciated. I think I will be staying away from Bostitc...

STANLEY BOSTICH - CAP2060P CONTRACTOR COMPRES. W/ 23 GAUGE PIN NAILER

STANLEY BOSTICH - CAP2060P CONTRACTOR COMPRES. W/ 23 GAUGE PIN NAILER

05-06-2008 01:57 AM by jockmike2 | 14 comments »

I blogged about this when it arrived by UPS, but have not had the chance to use it until now due to medical reasons. Luckily lately I’ve been able to do a little something in the shop and had the privilege to use my new Stanley Bostich Compressor. It is everything that Gary Blanchette said it would be and more. I can’t say enough about this man and his public relation’s skills, but he delivered on every promise he made, and that is exceptional in this day and age. I e-mailed...

I love this brad nailer. i got it a Lowe’s for about 80 dollars and it hasn’t failed me since. it has never jammed and the performance has been great. i decided on this brad nailer because it had a 7 year warranty and it was the only one under 100 dollars to accept brads up to 2”. i like how its oil free too. this is my first brad nailer so i don’t know how much of a good thing that is but my dad (who has had nailers you need to oil) says that its good. now more on ...

I BADMOUTHED THE WRONG COMPRESSOR

I BADMOUTHED THE WRONG COMPRESSOR

03-02-2008 03:43 PM by jockmike2 | 21 comments »

A while back I gave a negative review to this 2-in-1 brad / stapler with compressor, here on Lumberjocks. I was recently contacted by the “Director of Product Developement at Stanely Bostich.” I Quote, ” Your post regarding your frustrating experience with our compressor just came across my desk. First, I would like to apologize for the inconvience and frustration this problem caused you. For a short period of time, the valve plate was out of our specification which could le...
