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

09-14-2011 04:38 AM 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...

Inexpensive but surprisingly good

Inexpensive but surprisingly good

08-14-2011 06:14 AM by pjones46 | 10 comments »

Just purchased a Numax SP123 pinner from Amazon for Under $30. I had a project to apply some fine moulding which would be split by 18 guage brads and did a seach on pinners. Did not want to spend alot as I did not know if I would ever use it again and found this one and by looking it appeared to be good value. Anyway, got it along with some 3/4” pins and it really works great so far. It will shoot 1/2’ to 1” pins and has has a setting which adjust the depth of the ma...

Very Nice 23ga Pin Nailer

Very Nice 23ga Pin Nailer

04-25-2011 06:49 PM by Michael J | 6 comments »

Admittedly, this is my first 23ga pinner, so I don’t have anything to compare it to. However, I have 3 other Porter Cable nails gun, so I do have some frame of reference when it comes to pneumatic nail guns. I had done a lot of research on pin nailers and was just about to make a purchase when I came across a few reviews on the Rotek 23ga pin nailer. The reviews I read were very favorable and I liked the features that it came with, especially at the $99 price tag. I was origina...

Video Review of Hitachi's 2" Brad Nailer

Video Review of Hitachi's 2" Brad Nailer

Here is my review of a great little brad nailer that I have owned for over two years. Since this is a video, I was wondering if I should post it as a “video” blog post also? I figured I would ask so people wouldn’t think I was spamming or something.

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.

Senco quality

Senco quality

02-04-2011 02:10 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 3 comments »

I heard a while back that Senco went through some kind of financial troubles, so I was leery to buy this gun. That said, I’ve been using Senco nailers and staplers at work for years and I have been consistently impressed with the quality of their guns as well as the user-friendly direction the guns have gone to in the last 5 years. I nabbed this one on sale for $200 bucks at CPO brand new. I wanted a framer for the same reason anyone in their right mind wants a framing nailer, to build ...

HOLY CRAP- Why pay $100+

HOLY CRAP- Why pay $100+

02-01-2011 03:07 AM 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...

First one was a dud, second one is fine.

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. ...

Not exactly a fine woodworking tool, but it sure does drive nails!

I have now owned mine for about 6 months, and put it through plenty of hard paces. The good, the bad, and the ugly of it… The good…Purchase price $49.99 (had a GREAT coupon)...Drives a good variety of nail sizes.Safety works very well.Reasonable magazine capacity. The bad…Uses a LOT of air. My little HF compressor cycles a LOT when I use this thing.Shortest nails this will shoot 2-3/16”, would like to shoot 2” nails with it.Limited to 28 degree nails.Lack o...
