Best 23 Gauge Tool for the woodworking professional

Best 23 Gauge Tool for the woodworking professional

1631 days ago by Knotty | 11 comments »

I have had many nail guns over the years but I needed to share this one with you guys. This tool is from Cadex and shoots a 23 gauge brad or a 23 gauge headless pin. It has been my experience with this gun that the Brads hold much better than it’s headless counterpart, but leave no larger mark in the wood. ( I will always buy the brads now) I have used the tool on several exotic woods and it has loads of power to drive into hardwoods. This also has the coolest blow gun feature ever. ( T...

DeWalt DC616 18V 16 Gauge Cordless Straight Finish Nailer Review

DeWalt DC616 18V 16 Gauge Cordless Straight Finish Nailer Review

2226 days ago by Timber4fun | 4 comments »

Introduction – I have a small Porter-Cable air compressor and finish nailer. If you are like me, it doesn’t take long to get tired of hauling the air compressor, nailer, hose, nails, oil, and everything else that goes along with finish nailing, even when the compressor is small. Don’t get me wrong, I like my air compressor very much. However, it can be very inconvenient when you need to fire off just a few nails. In many similar cases, I’ll look for a workaround rather than haul out all m...

Grex Pin Nailer Review P635

Grex Pin Nailer Review P635

2412 days ago by StevePWL | 21 comments »

I purchased this gun in late Dec 07. I do a lot of trim on furniture and was sick of filling brad nail holes and not getting a good stain match. I had tried and returned a few other less expensive nailers so I wasn’t sure what to expect with the Grex. For the money ($199), I hoped it would be a good tool. After using it over the past few weeks, I am extremely pleased. I use the full 1 3/8” pin and they sink cleanly into the pine and poplar I generally use. The pin holes are very...

Best Nailer you'll find in this price range

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 ...

Tool Shop Nailer/Brad Nailer-Stapler/Pin Nailer Kit

Tool Shop Nailer/Brad Nailer-Stapler/Pin Nailer Kit

856 days ago by 47phord | 3 comments »

I picked this set up from Menards as a birthday present to myself. I had a Harbor Freight brad nailer that was, well, a harbor freight tool; a total piece of stinky-stuff. So, I was in the market for a new one plus I had been dreaming about getting a pin-nailer as well when I saw this kit on sale for $80. I picked it up after checking the return policy (knowing that ‘Tool Shop’ can be on par with ‘Harbor Freight’ in terms of quality) and took it home. First I̵...

Harbor Freight 23 Ga. Air Pinner

Harbor Freight 23 Ga. Air Pinner

1949 days ago by Tim Scoville | 22 comments »

I have become rather pragmatic in the purchasing of some tools for my shop. Harbor Freight is very accessible for me and the cost of air tools from the big box stores seems out of proportion to what they do and what I can buy them for at HF. I am not not a power user of air nailers but expect I will use them more and more over time. Although the normal price for this is $24.99, I think I picked mine up on sale for $16.99. The pins I buy in packages of 6000 for about $4. I love these pinners s...

I just bought this tool the other day specifically for one project, used it today for the first time, so this is an intial impression review and time will tell how it holds up or what other uses I may find for it.

Good she says, I ordered oriental carpet for a stair runners and you can help me install it this weekend. After reviewing her video on stair runner i...

Reliable, Well-Made 1 3/8" Pin Nailer

Reliable, Well-Made 1 3/8" Pin Nailer

1078 days ago by NiteWalker | 8 comments »

I bought this pin nailer primarily to hold small maple corner blocks in place while the glue sets. I tried brad nails and they would split the small 1 3/8”L x 3/4”W x 3/4” T blocks. I originally had my eyes on the Grex P635. For my application I didn’t need a pin nailer that could shoot the longer pins, so it came down to the Hitachi and the Grex. I decided on the Hitachi for a couple of reasons:- It was half the price of the Grex (it’s even less now on amazon...

HOLY CRAP- Why pay $100+

HOLY CRAP- Why pay $100+

1303 days ago by StumpyNubs | 34 comments »

Gotta say I never had much luck with the Harbor Freight (central pnuematic) brad nailer. But after trying out the micro pin nailer, I may just give the brad nailer another shot. This is a great buy- one of MANY diamonds in the rough at Harbor Freight. Here’s the details.. First of all, I was surprised that it was not made of plastic. The body is all is cast metal like the more expensive ones, and it feels good and heavy in the hand. Not that this is a vital feature, but it distrac...
