I took a few photos tonight as I was making some progress this weekend on my table saw extension / cabinet, and I looked down and saw my old Airy pin nailer lying there.
I bought it in 1985 with a couple other Hubbold nailers and staplers and a Thomas compressor.
I still use the compressor and have bought a number of new nailers, but the nailer that I always reached for is this old Airy. Don’t know if it is the feel, the weight of it, or just because I am used to using it.
Obviously it has seen better days, and you can see where the paint has worn off by it’s use (and my dry hands).
Anyone else still using an old Airy? I heard nothing good about them after I had mine a year or so, but I have not done anything to it except oil it and clean it periodically, and it has certainly paid me back with solid use.
Might have been the best $60.00 I ever spent…
I was just thinking if I saw this lying somewhere on a garage sale, I probably wouldn’t buy it, yet can’t believe how long it has lasted.
